Remembrance day in Ottawa
By: Patrick Dionne-Kuno, Clan Logan Representative of Ontario
On November 11, 2020 was the Remembrance Day ceremony at the National War Cemetery within the Beechwood Cemetery in Ottawa. We decided to arrive early at 9AM to take pictures before the ceremony started. Once all the pictures were taken, we moved closer to the site where officials were to host the ceremony at 11AM but unfortunately, due to the situation with Covid-19, there were military guards patrolling the area and we were informed that the event could only be attended by invited guests. That was disappointing to say the least! We were happy to at least have been able to take some pictures. It was interesting to find a tombstone belonging to William D Logan, a trooper from the Elgin Regiment who died the 22 of May 1975 at the age of 62. As well, we took pictures of various monuments, a tank, an artillery cannon, a 9/11 memorial, and a memorial for German Canadian soldiers. Despite not being able to attend the ceremony, Clan Logan felt fortunate to have attended and paid their respect, to all the soldiers that have sacrificed so much for our freedom, paying it with their lives.
Here I am in front of a cool looking tank!
I pay my respects to William D.Logan.
