You are a credit to your Nation.

The Duke of Sussex

Members of The Royal Bahamian Defence Force, you are a fine sight. ‬‪‬‪I am directed by The Queen, as Head of the RBDF, to extend Her Majesty's heartfelt good wishes to you all on the occasion of her Diamond Jubilee. ‬‪‬‪In the past, Bahamians have fought and, tragically, some have laid down their lives for their Country and the cause of freedom. Their steadfastness and courage back then are reflected in your obvious professionalism on parade today. ‬‪‬‪

You are a credit to your Nation.

‬‪All Bahamians are proud of you, and salute you - as does our Queen.
