When the past met the present

Boys of British Army standing beside a veteran who served in the Warwickshire’s

On Sun 7 Aug 2011, a Service of Praise and Thanksgiving on the Occasion of The 49th Anniversary of Jamaica’s Independence was held at the New Testament Church of God, Lozells, Birmingham UK.

It was a privilege to meet a few of the boys currently serving in the British Army standing alongside a veteran who served in the Warwickshire’s. 

The old and the young united in a common goal; to serve and protect the ‘Mother Country’ - men from Jamaica, Ghana and Zimbabwe.

Happy Independence Day, Jamaica

Happy Independence Day, Jamaica

Independence Day is celebrated in Jamaica each year on 6th August. It is the celebration of the date in 1962 when Jamaica gained full independence from Great Britain.

Thanks to ITV1 (UK) for showing the first James Bond film today, Dr No, where Secret Service agent 007 goes to Jamaica… The film was released in 1962.
