REMEMBRANCE DAY ON ST HELENA AND IN LONDON

The traditional Remembrance Day Service was held at the Cenotaph on the seafront yesterday.

Held to remember those who have fallen in the two World Wars and later conflicts, the service drew a large congregation of people to pay their respects to those who had lost their lives fighting for their country.

Led by the Right Reverend Lord Bishop of St Helena, Dr Richard Fenwick, the commemoration began with the customary march of the Island’s uniformed contingents from the Canister to the Cenotaph. This was followed by the laying of the wreaths on the Cenotaph.

The Territory’s Wreath was laid by Governor’s Deputy, Owen O’Sullivan and official wreaths were also laid for the French Republic, the Royal Navy, the Army, the Royal Air Force, the Merchant Navy, the St Helena Police Force and the St Helena Fire and Rescue Service. Members of the public were then able to lay their tributes on the Cenotaph.

The Service concluded with the traditional March Past outside the Supreme Court.
In London, St Helena also took part in the Remembrance Day commemorations as St Helenian Ex-Servicemen paraded on Horseguards’ Parade yesterday.

St Helenian Cyril Brooks (photo attached) was one of the Ex-Servicemen who marched in London yesterday. Cyril left the Island at the age of 17 in 1944, Cyril joined the Royal Navy and was stationed at the naval base in Simons Town, South Africa. In 1947 he served on the cruiser HMS Nigeria which escorted HMS Vanguard with the Royal Family on an official tour. Cyril left the Navy in 1948, and moved to the UK in 1949. He was a founder member of the St Helena Association, and served on the committee for 50 years before retiring as Vice President in 2011.

Three photos are attached to this release.
