As part of this year’s observance the country will join nations around the world in “Ringing for Peace”. To take part in this initiative churches and community members across all three islands are invited to honour the 100th anniversary of Armistice Day with 11 bell rings starting at 11 a.m. on Sunday.
NOTE TO MEDIA: Members of the media are reminded to please not cross in front of the parade grounds once the ceremony begins and parade contingents are in place. (GIS)
