A lecture exploring Bermuda’s role in the two world wars will be held at 6.30pm today at the Bermuda National Library.

The presentation will be made by veterans’ advocate Carol Everson, of the Bermuda Legion.

The Royal Gazette incorrectly reported earlier this week that the lecture would be delivered on Monday evening.

Ms Everson was among those who campaigned to secure veterans’ benefits for soldiers who served on the island rather than fighting overseas.

Black Bermudian veterans, who were blocked from serving in combat overseas, were unable to access benefits until key legislation was passed in 2007.
