GG faints at service
Governor General Sir Clifford Husbands had to be lifted out of a church service this morning after he fainted.
He was attending the multi-faith service for Commonwealth Day at the St Mary’s Church, when he fell ill. It was during the singing of the Barbados National Anthem.
Sir Clifford was lifted out of the church by his Aide-de-Camp Lieutenant Commander David Hope-Taylor and a police officer and taken to his waiting car which was escorted by police outriders.
Government House later reported that the Governor General had succumbed to the humid conditions in the church, but had fully recovered. (AH/GC)
