UK Police Roll of Honour Remembers US Special Agent

Special Agent Nole Remagen was on protective duty for the President's UK visit when he passed away in July 2018

Published on July 18, 2019

A memorial ceremony took place yesterday (July 17) in Scotland to honor the memory of US Special Agent Nole Remagen, who fell ill and passed away whilst escorting President Trump during his July 2018 visit to the United Kingdom.

Special Agent Remagen, a 5 year veteran of the US Marine Corps who went on to serve for almost 20 years in the Secret Service, reportedly fell ill on July 15, 2018, at Trump Turnberry, before later passing away at Queen Elizabeth University Hospital in Glasgow. At the time, President Trump said that Remagen "was among the elite heroes who serve in the Presidential Protection Division of the Secret Service".

The ceremony, marking a year since his passing, included the unveiling of a memorial plaque to Special Agent Remagen, who becomes an Honorary inclusion in the UK Police Roll of Honour. The UK Police Roll of Honour Trust, which maintains the Official Police Roll of Honour for the United Kingdom, described the entry of the American as an "exceptional move". But Sid McKay, Chairman of the Trust, explained that "Last year, we made the decision to include Special Agent Remagen as an Honorary inclusion in the UK Police Roll of Honour; as aside from his nationality he meets all of the criteria. We are very grateful to all who helped make the memorial service to Agent Remagen possible."

During the ceremony, wreaths were laid (see photo below) on behalf of the Remagen family, whilst another was laid by the Cabinet Secretary for Justice Humza Yousaf MSP on behalf of the Scottish Government. Commenting on the ocassion, Mr Yousaf said "I was privileged to participate in today's ceremony to honour the life and work of US Special Agent Nole Remagen, who died while on active service in Scotland. On behalf of the Scottish Government I would like to extend my deepest condolences to Special Agent Remagen's family, friends and co-workers as we remember him and all those who serve, and have served, to keep us safe."

Also in attendance were representatives from the US Secret Service, Police Scotland, the US Federal Officers Association, the Scottish Police Federation, the Association of Scottish Police Superintendents and other associated organizations.

Thank you to the UK Police Roll of Honour Trust and to the other organizations involved for showing a great Transatlantic spirit in remembering the work and life of US Special Agent Nole Remagen.
