Remembrance Day 2015 was a memorable one for me. In the morning I attended the Remembrance Day ceremony at Camp X. There the 2nd Intelligence Company from the Denison Armoury in Toronto held a Remembrance Day service at Intrepid Park. The site was home to Camp X, the Second World War training camp for spies which straddles the Oshawa/Whitby border on the shores of Lake Ontario. As part of the ceremony my friend, Jeffery Golde, laid a remembrance wreath at the foot of the cenotaph. Hundreds attended to pay their respect.
In the evening Lois and I attended the Canadian premier of the documentary film “Reunion of Giants“. From Suddenly SeeMore Productions, the film chronicles the mission of the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum’s Avro Lancaster bomber, VeRA. During the summer of 2014 the plane flew from Hamilton, Ontario, to Britain. There, as part of the Battle of Britain’s Memorial Flights, it teamed up with its British counterpart, Thumper, the only other Lancaster in the world still flying. The film is presented as a reality television adventure. It documents the historic flight through the eyes of the flight crews, veterans, friends and family.
Lois and I throughly enjoyed the film and highly recommend it. The trailer is presented below for your viewing pleasure.
