Southampton Remembrance Day to host Canadian Forces in salute

On Remembrance Day, November 11, 2018 in Southampton, 100 soldiers of ‘C’ Company from Canadian Forces Base (4CDTC) in Meaford, ON signified the 100 years since the signing of the World War I Armistice, Treaty of Versailles, and they came to pay tribute to the soldiers who volunteered from Bruce County to fight in the Great War that was supposed to end all wars.

This year, after extensive planning and correspondence between the Legion and Canadian Forces, the Cenotaph ceremony in Southampton will again be special as the Grey and Simcoe Foresters Company is sending a Firing Party for a three-round gun salute.

“We are so appreciative of the support we are receiving once again from our Canadian Forces for our Remembrance Day ceremony in Southampton,” says John Willetts, Southampton Legion Public Relations officer and past-President.
