NASSAU, BAHAMAS — The Royal Bahamas Defence Force (RBDF) continued its ongoing initiatives to recognize officers and marines when members of the Warrant Officers and Senior Rates (WOSR) Mess recently received tokens of appreciation for their services.

President of the WOSR Mess Chief Petty Officer Antoine Adams, along with his committee members, presented gifts and certificates to the staff on December 23, 2020, as a show of gratitude for their valuable contributions during the past year. In applauding their efforts and thanking them, he also encouraged them to continue to be good stewards as their services remain treasured tools.

Receiving recognition were chief petty officers Perry Colebrooke and Anoush Gould; petty officers Martin Culmer, Shantell McCartney, Martin Saunders, William Burns and Durell Coleby; Able Seaman Shain Lightbourne; and Able Woman Marine Shantaye Fox.

As a show of appreciation for his services, Adams was also presented with a keepsake from the WOSR Committee. An RBDF statement noted that Adams, having served as mess president for the past two years, “has made tremendous strides in efficiency as a leader”.

“The Mess Committee and members thanked him for his awesome leadership,” the statement read.

“As the Royal Bahamas Defence Force continues to guard the territorial integrity of the Commonwealth of The Bahamas, the organization says ‘Bravo Zulu’ to all officers and marines who serve with honor.”
