Collymore was one of some 2000 Bahamians who signed up for that war, taking to the skies as part of the Royal Air Force, Bahamas Air Service Squadron, which had its base in Oakes Field [this would have been where the National Stadium is presently located].

Today some 28 veterans are still alive.

This morning we pray for his family in this time of loss and for his soul that he may find rest eternal.
