BARBADOS JOINED SEVERAL countries across the Commonwealth paying tribute to its citizens who fought and lost their lives in the two World Wars.

During an hour-long parade and ceremony this morning at Heroes Square in historic Bridgetown, members of the country’s armed and unarmed units came together for a splendid ceremony followed by the laying of wreaths at the Cenotaph.

Prime Minister Freundel Stuart, Governor General Sir Elliot Belgrave, Chief Justice Sir Marston Gibson and Opposition Leader Mia Mottley were among the list of political, diplomatic, legal and military leaders who honoured the local fallen soldiers.
