A bit of a change today as I thought you might like something local. You will recall the other week, I played old school base ball and then went for a pitcher of beer with some great guests from the USA as well as cadets from Canada's Royal Military College. The fourth year cadets organize the annual charity game and today was the final day of their graduation process. I got over to the college to witness the final ceremony, the march through the arch.
We came early as family members gathered. Brass showed up and soon the bagpipes were heard leading this year's class down towards the memorial that names each of their colleagues since the 1870s who have given their life. Above is a hat. It was thrown to my feet by a newly minted 2nd lieutenant who got a little over enthused. Usually your hat goes on your sword when you pass under the arch. I got it back to him.
A nicer bunch of you men and women you will never meet. I am as far left as they come but have no doubt that these are Canada's pride.
