RCAF

As they do every year on November 11, members of the Britannia Yacht Club in Ottawa’s West End remember those who lost their lives in defense of our country. Facing Lac Deschenes, standing bareheaded before the flagpole, they unsuccessfully attempt to shelter against the biting wind while the Sea Cadet bugler plays “Last Post” and the Commodore recites “In Flanders Fields”. If one listens carefully, out on the water, the sound of a World War II flying boat taking off can be heard.
