REMEMBRANCE DAY DAWN SERVICE

Members of our disciplined forces and military attachés from the British Army, Australia and New Zealand joined the Minister for Defence and National Security Hon. Ratu Inoke Kubuabola at the Remembrance Day dawn service that was held at the Military Cemetery, Reservoir Road in Suva.

The service was held to honour our servicemen and women of both world wars including those who had lost their lives in the line of duty, in the many theatres of conflict since.

A two minute silence was observed, followed by the sounding of the rouse and a ritual was done as a pledge to guard the honour of those we have lost.

Minister for Defence and National Security Ratu Inoke Kubuabola laid the first wreath followed by RFMF Commander Rear Admiral Viliame Naupoto along with the other invited guests.

There was a short church service led by RFMF Chaplain Rev. Ilaitia Tuwere, followed by the reading of the Binyon lines, a most famous and enduring war poem written at an historic moment to remember those that had fallen in the line of duty.

The service continued at the Fiji Naval Base at Walu Bay.
