Poppies and Pictures

For Remembrance Day this year, two other members of the Peanut Gallery and I attended a ceremony at Minto Armouries

While we wandered around, I snapped some pictures of our men and women in uniform, their proud family members, and the  precision and traditions of the ceremony.
