War Dead to be Honoured Sunday

The traditional National Day of Remembrance to those who gave their lives in World War I from 1912 to 1918 and World War 11 from 1939 to 1945 will be observed with the Laying of Wreaths at the War Memorial or Cenotaph on the Bay Road.

The Service commences at 8 ‘o’ clock in the morning with the firing of a gun signaling the observance of two minutes silence and the playing of The Last Post.

Representatives of the St. Kitts Evangelical Association and the St. Kitts Christian Council will conduct the service which will end with the laying of wreaths.

Wreaths are laid by the Governor General, the Prime Minister, representatives of the British Government, the British Commonwealth Ex-Servicemen League, the Commander of the St. Kitts-Nevis Defense Force, the Commissioner of the Royal St. Christopher and Nevis Police Force, the Nurses, Red Cross, St. John’s Ambulance Brigade, Scouts, Guides, the 4-H and Seventh Day Adventist Pathfinders.

The general public has been asked to observe the occasion by keeping the two minute silence whether they attend the service or not. All movement of wheeled traffic should cease during this period.

Ex-Servicemen of both wars are especially invited to attend the service in uniform if possible and special sections are reserved for them. Decorations should be worn.
