, HMS Bermuda, Nigerian Independence in 1960

Written by ERA Wheeler

I was a member of the Royal Guard at the Independence ceremony, at the racecourse, in Lagos - Nigeria.
A year later, in 1961, I was again in the Royal Guard for their Independence ceremony in Freetown - Sierra Leone
In Lagos we were the only unit to march to and from stadium where the ceremony was taking and the return march was quite hostile.
