A detachment of the Royal Cayman Island Police Service, ex-servicemen, Girls’ Brigade, Scouts, Prison, Cadets, Veteran, Pathfinders Fire and Lions along with government officials and guests remembered the fallen. 

Uniformed organisations took up assigned positioned around the memorial cross and the ceremony began with the arrival of Governor Duncan Taylor and wife Marie-Beatrice, along with Cabinet Minister Mike Adam, 

A two-minute silence preceded the firing of the salute gun, to remember those who had made the great sacrifice in defence of freedom.
