Lest We Forget

Photos

This year I attended a Remembrance Day service at Vimy Ridge Memorial Park. The following are some photos I took during the chilly service.

Judy Hemlow was a medic with the Canadian Women's Army Corp during Canada's peacekeeping efforts. She and her fellow veterans wear special vests on Remembrance Day telling the story of when and where they served. Hemlow comes to Vimy Ridge Memorial Park with her group of vets every year.
