GRAND BAHAMA EVENTS: APRIL 2009
Memorial for HMBS Flamingo (Monday, May 11th, 2009)
This is not being held in Grand Bahama, but this is an important event. May 10th was the 29th anniversary of the sinking of the HMBS Flamingo which was unjustly attacked by Cuban MIGS off the Ragged Island chain in 1980. The Commander of the boat was Amos Rolle. Four Bahamian marines — Fenrick Sturrup, Austin Smith, David Tucker and Edward Williams — lost their lives in service to their country.
