10 November 2012


I have taken opportunity in the past to do posts about the service of each of our parents.  I have linked those posts at the bottom if you are interested in having a look.

Today I want to share with you what has been a new tradition in our family.  Our son-in-law Spencer is an RCMP (Royal Canadian Mounted Police) and whether working on the day or volunteering, he will be dressed in his red serge uniform in a parade or at a local ceremony.  Of course Allison and the now four children turn out for the ceremony and typically one side of the family or the other has arrived for a visit at the same time.  This picture is a few years old but I particularly like the various flags in the background and the glimpse of a kilted piper there on the bottom left.

Not only will we recognize the meaning of the day but it is also a day  to remember and think about each of our parents and their service.





  1. Great picture with the serge and the kilted drummer. My grandad served in the Royal Iniskillin Fusiliers (in England) and the 16th Scottish Battalion (Canada). He always marched in the Ypres section of the parade.


I adore comments! Thank you so much!
