At the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, Armistice of Compiègne's 100th anniversary solemnly observed (HF)
Soldiers from Canada’s most recent war gathered with other veterans to remember the signing, 100 years ago, of the Armistice that ended the First World War on Sunday for the Remembrance Day ceremony at the Grandview Park cenotaph on Commercial Drive.
“The First World War was called the Great War for a reason,” mater of ceremonies Gerry Vowles said. “The horrors of that conflict had never been seen before.
“With the war finally over, it was hoped a war of that scale would not be seen again.”
Royal Canadian Air Force veteran Colleen de Serres, 86, who flew the Tiger Moth single engine aircraft in France during the Korean War, attends a Remembrance Day ceremony in Vancouver, on Sunday, November 11, 2018. Her great uncle is Canadian aviation pioneer Douglas McCurdy.
