Holiday: Remembrance Day
Collection Date: Tuesday, November 14th
In our charming Olde Towne, a place steeped in colonial heritage, the echoes of war have left an indelible mark on our journey towards prosperity and progress.
It's crucial to remember that, at the heart of any conflict, the focus should always be on the people involved. Remembrance Day serves as a poignant reminder of the sacrifices made by individuals for the sake of their nation's prosperity.
In Commonwealth nations like the United Kingdom, Remembrance Day is a time-honoured tradition. At 11:00 am on November 11th, the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month, a one- to two-minute silence is observed. This precise moment marks when the armistice came into effect in the United Kingdom.
The Service of Remembrance in many Commonwealth countries typically begins with the solemn rendition of the "Last Post." This is followed by a period of silence, during which we reflect on the sacrifices made. Afterward, "Reveille" or occasionally "The Rouse" is played, signifying hope and resilience. Additionally, the ceremonies include the solemn laying of wreaths to honour the fallen, blessings, and the rendition of national anthems.
The Royal Bermuda Regiment holds a unique place in our community. While it's often seen as a voluntary national service, it's essential to acknowledge its historical role in times of global instability, like World War I and World War II. Bermuda, with its strategically located forts in St. George's, played a vital role in protecting British interests in the Atlantic.
Today, ongoing national training equips Royal Bermuda Regiment soldiers to integrate into international programmes throughout the region, strengthening our commitment to global security.
While the Bermuda Government assumes financial responsibility for the regiment, the United Kingdom retains ultimate responsibility for our islands' security. This underscores the close connection between Bermuda's military traditions and the men and women of the United Kingdom, who have made significant sacrifices for our freedom.
Scoop The Poop
Dogs seek owners help in poop clean up.
Dogs are adorable, but their poop is not. In our towne, maintaining a pristine appearance is crucial, and people remember cleanliness. Regrettably, we must address instances of carelessness.
While we love strolling with our canine companions, we do not enjoy having our staff clean up after them or guests being subjected to the smoosh of the odour-carrying clumps that leave a dreadful impression. We kindly request all dog owners to please be responsible and pick up after their pets when walking along Water Street, Ordnance Island, and King’s Square.
Recently, we had to implement a ban on dogs in our gardens, and we hope to avoid extending that ban to other public walking areas in the town.
