Members of RCM-SAR Station 59 participated in the Remembrance Day ceremony at the Royal Canadian Legion in Bowser on November 11, 2016.
A large number of people attended the ceremony, which began with a parade from the Magnolia Court parking lot to the cenotaph at the Bowser Legion.
RCM-SAR Station 59 Media Officer Rick Jamison laid a wreath at the cenotaph on behalf of the Lighthouse Country Marine Rescue Society.
Remembrance Day is a memorial day to remember members of the armed forces who have died in the line of duty. The red remembrance poppy has become a familiar emblem of Remembrance Day due to the poem “In Flanders Fields” written by Canadian physician Lieutenant-Colonel John McCrae.
