As a WWI veteran himself, Jim Waddell regularly commemorated the contribution of those who took part in World War I, marching with pride in Remembrance Day parades.
His children seldom attended the Remembrance Day Ceremony with their father in Montreal, instead staying in Ste.-Rose with their Mother.
Remembrance Day is a time to honour the sacrifices made by all soldiers and their families from all backgrounds in the name of peace and freedom from oppression.
Do you have a story about a special Remembrance Day ceremony in Montreal? Please share it here and I'll post it for others to appreciate.
