Wreaths will be laid today by the Governor, the Premier and other dignitaries as the island remembers people who sacrificed their lives in the line of duty.

The Remembrance Day Parade will take place on Front Street, with activities starting at 10.30am.

A government spokeswoman said that Rena Lalgie, the Governor, and David Burt, the Premier, will be among those who lay wreaths.

She added: “The Royal Bermuda Regiment will support the ceremony with a guard on parade. And music for the ceremony will be provided by the RBR Band & Corps of Drums, the Somerset Brigade Band, the Salvation Army Band and the Bermuda Islands Pipe Band.”

The annual Poppy Appeal Day started yesterday as members from the Royal Bermuda Regiment and the Royal British Legion stationed throughout the island to distribute poppies, ahead of Remembrance Day.
