Guard Coy Citizenship project, Pleasant Valley Cemetery

Guard Coy for the second year, participated in a unique ceremony at the Pleasant Valley Cemetery. Officiated by Padre Jack Greenhalgh, each cadet and staff laid poppies and Canadian flags at the graves of Canadian soldiers, airmen and sailors. These servicemen had served in diverse conflicts as the Boer War, WWI, WWII, Korea War as well as peacekeeping missions around the world. A few were of servicemen who had died in training during WWI or WWII. Evoking a tradition long held by schoolchildren in the Netherlands, it's hoped that cadets will take the experience home to their units and share the the feelings with friends and family. They shall not be forgotten...
