Thousands gathered at Victoria Park to pay their respects

London, ON, Canada / 106.9 The X

Thousands of supporters honoured those fallen soldiers at Victoria Park this Remembrance Day, and those supporters felt passionate and proud about the ceremony.

The parade marched towards the Cenotaph, where speeches and music took place as well as the moment of silence at 11 o’clock.

The very young to the very old, young families, school groups and uniformed supporters paid their respects to the men and women who served and still serve today, laying wreaths and poppies around the cenotaph.

Residents and those who attended the ceremony were pleased with how it went; Mary Margaret paid her respects at Victoria Park. She says it was a very meaningful and wonderful service.

Mary Margaret adds it was a beautiful day for everyone to come out to remember and reflect on how fortunate we are to be living on this land.

Another supporter was very happy to see so many people out supporting, noting the great amount of young people who attended.

One relatively new resident to London who is originally from Poland says she was fortunate enough to support those fallen men and women, and those still serving today for the first time, and enjoyed the ceremony immensely.

After the ceremony residents and supporters gathered at Centennial Hall to see exhibits which express just a portion of all there is to remember, and a chance to thank the heroes, soldiers and veterans.
