Gambia observes Remembrance Day

By Patience Loum

Gambians yesterday joined the British High Commissioner and the Gambia Armed Forces to commemorate the annual Remembrance Sunday at the Fajara War Cemetery.
The ceremony started with a solemn two-minute silence to honor the war heroes and remember the sacrifice they made.

The beginning and end of the two minutes’ silence were marked by the gun salutes by the Gambia Armed Forces.

The laying of wreaths was done by officials from the members of Gambia Armed Forces, Children from Jofi Modern School, and other individuals, followed by prayers from both the Imam and Bishop of Banjul.
