Remember the victims of war on Sunday
On Sunday, the world will pay pay homage to the sacrifice of veterans and civilians in World Wars I and II, and other wars with the commemoration of Remembrance Day.
In Barbados, Barbados Defence Force personnel have been handing out poppies, and locals and visitors have been contributing to the Poppy Appeal, which will go to fund programmes for war veterans and their families.
Cheese-on-Bread salutes all those who made the ultimate sacrifice so that we can live as free citizens. To those countries still afflicted by the ravages of war, we pray for a speedy resolution.
