LEST WE FORGET (3) - NOVEMBER 11, 2010
These are Bob's parents (Jean (Buckman) and Wally McLean). On their honeymoon in Scotland, August 1945. Jean (age 20) served in England and met Wally (age 23) who was Canadian Army on a posting in England. They always observed Remembrance Day, turning out for a parade or wreath laying ceremony and typically joining friends at the Canadian Legion hall.
Bob and I spent a few minutes this morning talking about our parents, remembering them and their photos which mean so much to us. If we don't go to the local ceremony we will still spend time respecting them at 11:11.
