Heroes Square tribute
Scores of Barbadians braved the early morning heat to witness the annual Rembrance Day Parade at the Heroes Square today.
The brief showers did not dampen the enthusiam of the visitors as they stood in awe at the precision and immaculate appearance of armed and unarmed forces as they went through their routine.
From as early as 7:30 a.m. the spectators took up every vantage point as they watched members of the Barbados Defence Force, Royal Barbados Police Force, Barbados Coast Guard, Girl Guides, among others, to remember those who fell, giving their lives for the country.
The laying of the wreaths was a highlight of the parade as personnel from various entities went through the ritual at the War Memorial.
The event concluded with a brief inter-denominational service giving thanks to the fallen. (JS)
