“In Flanders fields the poppy’s blow between the crosses, row on row, that marks our place; and in the sky the larks, still bravely singing, fly scarce heard amid the guns below.”
One of many poems made and spoken for Canada’s day of remembrance to those that have paid the ultimate price.
In Oromocto, New Brunswick, large crowds flow out to watch the parade of soldiers march to the towns cenotaph.
The military population of Oromocto is large, creating close relations with civilian citizens.
Many soldiers are in attendance to pay their respects to the fallen.
Both active duty and retired.
Fallen soldiers from the town are spoken out so everyone can remember.
The ceremony ends with soldiers lining up and placing their poppy on the many reefs surrounding the cenotaph.
This is what brings a close to the Oromocto remembrance day ceremony.
The poppies represent the responsibility to never forget.
