Hundreds of soldiers attached to the Second Battalion, Jamaica Regiment, displayed their full military might in a Battalion March Past in downtown Montego Bay, St. James, on Wednesday, May 15.
The event was staged to reassure the citizens of the Second City of the Jamaica Defence Force’s strong presence in western Jamaica. It also doubled as a celebration of the Unit’s 40th anniversary since its inception in 1979.
“It’s just a show of strength and show of numbers to reassure the citizens that the army is here,” Sergeant Jason Lampart told JIS News.
