Here in Bermuda Remembrance Day, November 11, is observed at the National War Memorial and Cenotaph on Front Street in the city of Hamilton. The Remembrance Day Parade is a solemn occasion which honours and pays tribute to those who fought and fell as Bermudians and British subjects in units of the British Armed Forces during the 1914-1918 Great War (World War I) and World War II.

Guards of Honour form the Bermuda Regiment, Bermuda Police Service, Bermuda Reserve Police, Bermuda Fire Service, Bermuda Cadet Corps and Sea Cadets assemble on the lawn of the Cabinet Building, having marched on behind the Band and Corps of Drums of the Bermuda Regiment and the Division Band of the Salvation Army. Once the Guards are in position, the War Veterans are marched on parade by the Combined Somerset Brigade and North Village Bands. His Excellency the Governor arrives and inspect the War Veterans. Relatives or descendants of a World War veteran are invited to take part and are welcome to wear the medals or awards of the person they are representing.

With hymns and prayers, local clergy conduct a service of remembrance. At 1100 hours the bugler sounds the Last Post. Wreaths are then laid in memory of the fallen by dignitaries, Service Chiefs and the Veterans themselves. The Reveille is played at the end of the service. The Veterans and Guards then march off parade.
