Elk and Beaver
What else did we do in Canada? - well, amongst other things we attended the Battle of the Atlantic Commemoration Service.
My beautiful god-daughter Boo was in the parade with her sea scout troop so there was no way we were missing this event!
Attended by proud veterans,
the Canadian Navy, the US Submariners, and the Navy Cadets this was a touching service to the honour of the Canadian servicemen lost during the longest battle of World War Two.
Bringing up the rear was a small troop of determined children, polished and cleaned to within an inch of their lives - stubbornly marching to the beat.
This is the image that sums up the morning - RESPECT...(Boo is second from right)
My mother summed up my thoughts about Boo when she said 'that girl is a credit to her Ma!'.......
