WWII Royal Air Force/Royal Canadian Air Force Honour Wall, Essex Ontario

 

I would say this was a magical day. The event was done so beautifully. A black Hawk flew over head (if you were there you would know the significance), a couple planes, Bag Pipes, Soldiers everywhere and loving Friends & Family.

 

My grandfather (Mom’s side) was a Photographer (runs in the family ;)) in World War II for the Royal Canadian Air Force.

 

I saw some of these photographs that he took. I don’t think this is the place to talk about it…I don’t think I even know how to explain them or express my thought and feelings towards them. I’m not a history buff, however I appreciate our past (and other culture’s history).

Harrow Cenotaph Dedication Ceremony, Harrow Ontario

 

The anniversary of D Day. The lot this park was built on was a burned down building the town had acquired for this reason. Another lovely dedication ceremony for those have fought for us. The past, present and future.
