Remembrance Day 2015 at Sullivan's Pond

Although I have done the rounds of various Remembrance Day services in downtown Halifax over the years to get photos, it has been many years since I actually attended a single service at the cenotaph. This year the kids are old enough to start appreciating it, so the family headed down to Sullivan's Pond for the service there. While chilly and windy, the weather didn't treat us too badly, and the threatened rain held off. Largely without comment, I include some of the photos I took this morning.

Originally erected in the 1950s, the Sullivan's Pond cenotaph was completely disassembled this year and reassembled in time for the service. A new plaque on the side dedicates the cenotaph to five conflicts, including the Boer War, First World War, Second World War, Korean War, as well as Afghanistan.
