Today, and every day, we remember and honour the Bahamian men and women who have served in armed forces throughout the world, including the Gallant Thirty, the Thompson brothers, and Green Turtle Cay’s own Lewis Lowe.
I received an email today from a gentleman who’s working with the Bahamas Branch of the British Legion to produce a tribute to Bahamians who served in World War I. The piece, which will commemorate the hundredth anniversary of the end of the first World War, will be published as a special supplement in the Nassau Tribune this November.
If any of your Bahamian ancestors served during the first World War, or you’ve got photos or other information that might be of value to those producing this tribute, please contact me and I’ll put you in touch with them. Thanks!
