Remembering Sir Tom Moore

The Chief of Staff, Colonel Glyne Grannum, with all ranks and civilian staff of the Barbados Defence Force, extend our sincerest condolences to the family of the late Colonel (retired) Sir Tom Moore.

As the world continues to fight against COVID-19, Sir Tom Moore raised more than $90 million (£33 million) in charity walks for the UK National Health Service (NHS).

Last December, members of the Force were honoured when he visited St Ann’s Fort and the Barbados Legion where he received honorary membership.

May he rest in peace and rise in glory.
