Even though World War I occurred a century ago and no living veterans of that war remain, the utter brutality and staggering death toll of World War I left a permanent mark on the “collective memory” of Bermuda and other British Commonwealth states. Ever since King George V declared the commemoration after the war’s end, it has been kept in Bermuda and in many other locales.
However, the meaning of the day has been expanded over the years. And now, the remembrance service held every year at Victoria Park includes reference to World War II and other wars as well. Following the service, a parade is held.
