LABRADOR CITY, N.L.
It was a cold and blustery day in Labrador City on Nov. 11 for the annual Remembrance Day ceremony.
Temperatures approaching -10 degrees didn’t stop the gathering of about 50 people from remembering those who gave everything for the freedom we enjoy today.
The names of those who had a wreath laid in their memory were called out. In total 56 wreathes were laid by friends, family members and compatriots.
To mark the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War the Legion held a Bells of Peace ceremony later in the afternoon, part of a nationwide initiative of the Royal Canadian Legion. It was meant to imitate when church bells rang out across Europe in 1918 to signal the end of the war.
