Our annual Remembrance Day Ceremony  was held this Friday with Major Veneables playing  "Last Post" and moments of silence observed.  Members talked about family members who served. A special speaker, Vinod Varapdravn explained the role of the Indian Army troops in WWI.  1.2 million Indian solders took part in the war.  Many were there at the early stages of the war in France and came with limited arms and summer Khaki uniforms.  They took part in the capture of Haifa including a cavalry charge with lances and swords.  To commerce the role of the Indian Army 108 trees have been planted on Veterans Memorial Highway at the corner of Hamilton Rd. and Veterans Memorial Highway.
