Students of the Combermere School file into the Major Noott Hall in Waterford, St Michael, to pay their last respects to one of their own. The late Prime Minister David Thompson is lying in state today at his alma mater as students, teachers, Combermere old scholars and the public get their change to say their final farewell to the Combermerian who became Prime Minister of Barbados in 2008.
