One of the many colourful ceremonies held at the Bermuda Cenotaph in Hamilton.

This monument pays homage to the fallen Bermudian soldiers of World War I and World War II. It attracts visitors and locals alike who want to pay their respects to both soldiers they know, and those they don't know. The stone memorial is a mirror image of the larger, more famous version in London.

You can see the Cabinet Building in the back.
