Remembrance Day 2016

What a great day on Friday. The members of Branch 187 turned out in better numbers than recent years to take part in the parade and service at the cenotaph. The Colour Parties of both the Branch and the LA looked great.

There was a great showing at the cenotaph by members of the community attending the service. The sunshine sure didn’t hurt.

A big thank you to all who took part in the parade including; the Air Force City Pipe Band, the members of the 429 Squadron, the Fire Department, Masonic Lodge, the Lions, the cadets and students from Colborne Public School.

Our thanks and respects to Lt.-Col Scott Mutton & Comrade Don Prentice for taking the salute as we passed in review.

A special shoutout to little Jack Barber who stood beside his dad saluting us as we paraded to the cenotaph.
