Cayman Islands Government

A Rainy Remembrance Day

The Deputy Premier the Hon. Juliana O'Connor-Connolly lays a wreath at the Seaman's Memorial.

Despite inclement weather, Cayman's residents packed the George Town Elmslie Memorial Church this Remembrance Day (Sunday, 8 November), paying tribute to those who fought and died for peace.

Following the customary two-minute silence for those fallen on the battlefield, Captain Dale Banks read the poem In Flanders Field. This was followed by the laying of wreaths inside the church, led by His Excellency the Governor Stuart Jack, CVO.

Cayman's veterans take their places before the start of the Remembrance Day service.

Wreaths were also laid by Deputy Premier the Hon. Juliana O'Connor-Connolly and Opposition Leader, the Hon. Kurt Tibbetts.

A break in the weather allowed the laying of additional wreaths at the Seaman's Memorial in addition to a short police parade.
