Proud to be Canadian - November 11

The war memorial in Victoria BC

My father served in WW2 aboard the HMS Ottawa.

His medals had new ribbons put on and were mounted in a frame which we now have.
Dad never saw action during the war but contracted malaria when stationed in Bermuda which affected him for a number of years.  We were one of the lucky families.
Remembering all the men and women who lost their lives in the past wars.


  1. Hi Judith: I can see you in your Dad. It is wonderful that you have his medals.

  2. Isn't that a lovely tribute. Nicely done.

  3. So nice to have your Dad's medals. I will remember at 11 tomorrow. Take care.

  4. Your Dad looked so young and I think you resemble him too.

    Take care,

  5. We'll be at the cenotaph tomorrow, in the small town at the end of our road. It's so important to remember.....

  6. Oh my gosh! That picture of your dad is just precious! What a treasure! And thank you for remembering!

  7. This is a beautiful tribute, Judith. Your father is a good looking man.
    Blessings, Beth
