Remembrance Day

Remembrance Day

With traditional dignity and due ceremony, Cayman will pay homage to fallen veterans in a day of remembrance on Sunday, 9 November.

The annual Remembrance Day ensures that all military personnel slain on duty, particularly in the two world wars, are not forgotten for making the heaviest sacrifice of all - giving their lives so that the rest of us might live in peace.

The memorial will start promptly at 10.45 a.m. on Harbour Drive at the Cenotaph in front of Elmslie Memorial Church.

Contingents from uniformed organisations will assemble there while members of the public should be seated by 10.30 a.m.

Following the Royal Salute, His Excellency the Governor, Mr Stuart Jack, CVO, will lead all in the bidding to commemorate the fallen. Then the congregation will stand silently for two minutes in remembrance.

Once the Last Post is sounded, the Governor, the Leader of Government Business, the Hon. Kurt Tibbetts, JP, and Leader of the Opposition, the Hon. McKeeva Bush, OBE, JP, will head a host of congregation members in laying wreaths at the cenotaph.

Wreaths will also be placed at the nearby Seaman's Memorial. The Governor will then take the salute during a march past by the uniformed contingents including the police, the cadet corps and veterans which will conclude the service.
