ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI- His Excellency the Governor, Mr. Boyd McCleary, CMG, CVO and Deputy Governor Inez Archibald were among the persons at Sunday’s Remembrance Day service held on Sunday, 14 November at the Road Town Methodist Church, a press release from Government Information Service (GIS).

Remembrance Day is celebrated annually to focus attention on those service men and women who gave their lives that we may continue to live in freedom and democracy. Poppy and Remembrance Sunday, was started by servicemen and women to make sure later generations never forgot the suffering caused by the 1914-1919 World War.

The wearing of poppies on Remembrance Day has become more than a tribute to the dead. It is also a symbol of remembrance, compassion and caring for all victims of war.
