Hundreds Mark Remembrance Day In Sunny Brae

For the first time since 2019, a parade marked the beginning of the Remembrance Day ceremony in Moncton’s Sunny Brae neighbourhood.

Veterans, current military members, first responders, cadets, scouts, guides and other service groups along with the Moncton District Pipe Band marched from the Sunny Brae Legion on Broadway to the Cenotaph on Massey Avenue.

Hundreds of people including many families turned out for the service on an unusually mild November day to honour the men and women who have lost their lives in service of Canada.

Community members laid wreaths and crosses in memory of loved ones who made the ultimate sacrifice.

Eleven veterans of the First World War and eleven veterans from the Second World War were honoured along with other soldiers who served overseas including in Afghanistan.

This was a full Remembrance Day service unlike 2020 and 2021 when the pandemic led to smaller, scaled-down ceremonies.
