Road trip a hit


Share post:

BROKEN HAS NEVER looked so good.

The commemorative Broken Trident made its first stop for the year yesterday at Gun Hill Signal Station, St George, and along with its wooden carrying case and armed guards, it was more of an attraction than the view the area is known for.

As tour buses filled with passengers from the Royal Caribbean cruise ship Jewel Of The Seas came to the former military outpost, many of them were immediately curious as to the meaning and purpose of prominently placed ornament, which was designed by Donna Redman and constructed and donated by Williams Industries as a part of their contribution to Barbados’ 50th anniversary of Independence celebrations.

Couple Roger and Sheelagh Lewis from Somerset, England, were among those captivated by the Broken Trident and asked the officers on duty about the Pride of Barbados and what other celebrations the country would be having for the 50th anniversary.
