By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: Countries across the Commonwealth commemorate the servicemen and women who have fallen in the line of duty since World War I.
Remembrance Day is observed every 2nd Sunday in November and it commemorates and pays tribute to the British service members who have died in wars and military conflicts since the onset of World War I.
In Belize, members of the Belize Defence Force, Belize Police Department, Belize Coastguard, and personnel from the British Army Training Support Unit Belize (BATSUB) participated in a series of ceremonies to remember those fallen in conflicts past and present.
Laying of wreaths was also conducted by the Governor General of Belize, the British High Commission, and the Royal British Legion.
“BATSUB service men and women also paid their respects to the commonwealth graves located in Belize City. Ensuring the graves are suitably maintained,” BATSUB noted.
In the United Kingdom, church services and ceremonial gatherings were held.
