State House, Freetown, 11 November 2018 – His Excellency President Julius Maada Bio has joined many others around the world to commemorate the centenary Poppy Day in honour of ex-servicemen and women who lost their lives in the line of duty at an interfaith ceremony held at the Cenotaph, Secretariat Building, George Street in Freetown.

Shortly after the religious service President Bio, who was accompanied by his elegant wife, Mrs Fatima Bio, laid a wreath at the Cenotaph in honour of his compatriots who lost their lives during the World Wars, eleven years civil war and the Ebola epidemic in Sierra Leone.

Also known as Remembrance Day, the Poppy Day is a memorial day observed in Commonwealth of Nations member states since the end of the First World War in 1918 to remember members of their armed forces who died in the line of duty. It is observed on the 11 November each year in most Commonwealth countries.
