That are left grow old;
Age shall not weary them nor
The years condemn.
At the going down of the sun
And in the morning,
We will remember them.
from "For the Fallen"
We attended the Remembrance Day service in downtown Cambridge (Galt) Ontario this morning. I put some of my pictures together into a video collage in honour of those who fought to keep our great country of Canada free.
A platoon of the Royal Highland Fusiliers of Canada is stationed in Cambridge ON. They attended the service in their ceremonial dress with kilts and bagpipes. It was a very moving to hear the bands, sing the hymns and anthems, listen to poems and stories and watch the laying of many wreaths in honour of fallen soldiers. Everyone, from babes in arms and frail old veterans in wheelchairs was silent for two minutes at eleven o'clock in remembrance.
O Canada we stand on guard for thee!
(I posted this video on YouTube and the pictures are larger and easier to see.)
