Remembrance Days in Montreal

Remembrance Day Parade in Montreal

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.
