Prime Minister of St. Kitts and Nevis Dr. the Hon. Timothy Harris.
Prime Minister Harris was speaking in an address to the nation on Saturday 9th November ahead of National Day of Remembrance.
On Sunday 10th November, St. Kitts and Nevis joined the other Commonwealth nations in paying respects to the heroes who gave their lives during the Great Wars, World War I (1914 to 1918) and World War II (1939 to 1945).
On St. Kitts the annual Remembrance Day Religious Service and Parade in St. Kitts commenced at 8:00am at the Cenotaph in Fortlands, Basseterre.
The Prime Minister urged citizens and residents to be our brothers’ keepers in order to build a stronger nation.
The names of the 20 men from St. Kitts-Nevis and Anguilla who died serving in World War I are inscribed at the Cenotaph, as well as the names of the six men who died serving in World War II.
Here on Nevis, a similar service was held at the War Memorial in Charlestown.
