A Memorable REMEMBRANCE weekend 2016

Greetings from the Highlands of Scotland,

I have just enjoyed a weekend of Remembrance, with parades and the laying of wreaths at the Highland memorial.

I have also enjoyed a weekend reminiscing of friends whom I have said goodbye to over the years. From Duke Collinson  who went down in a plane crash  in the Yukon back in 68. To my friend Tom Jardine who 25 years ago , died in the Herc crash 13 miles short of Alert. So many friends taken not by war but by their service to Queen and country. There have been many who have paid the ultimate price that were not involved in  a war, but rather the peaceful ,carrying out of their duties. The families and Loved ones of all military personnel, suffer greatly on behalf of their love for a soldier. So as this Remembrance weekend passes, I will REMEMBER THEM.

Now about the Legion in Canada, I would like to tell them that it was indeed heartwarming to be on Parade here in Scotland , and to see both men and women wearing a relative’s medals on parade or in the crowd. A more wonderful token of Remembrance I do not know.

To see Prince Harry greeting a child who was wearing his Uncle’s medals was indeed Heartwarming.


So to the Dominion Command of the Royal Canadian Legion get off your high horses and amend the rules of Remembrance.

A few photos from the Parade I attended follow. I will be correcting issues as required over the next few Blogs.
