Summary:

Bermuda’s Fallen Heroes are remembered in this solemn parade and service.

Guards of Honour form the Bermuda Regiment, Bermuda Police Service, Bermuda Reserve Police, Bermuda Fire Service, Bermuda Cadet Corps and Sea Cadets assemble on the lawn of the Cabinet Building, having marched on behind the Band and Corps of Drums of the Bermuda Regiment and the Division Band of the Salvation Army.
Once the guards are in position, the War Veteran’s are marched on parade by the Combined Somerset Brigade and North Village Bands.  His Excellency the Governor arrives and inspect the War Veterans.

With hymns and prayers, local clergy conduct a service of remembrance.  At 1100 hours the bugler sounds the Last Post.  Wreaths are then laid in memory of the fallen by dignitaries, Service Chiefs and the Veterans themselves. The Reveille is played at the end of the service.

The Veterans and guards then march off parade.
