His Honour the Honourable John C. Crosbie, Lieutenant Governor of Newfoundland and Labrador, laid a wreath during the ceremony at the War Memorial before making his way to the Court House on Water Street to take the salute. To the nines in seal skins, no less.
The crowd on Water street was eventually asked to move back to make room for the parade. When one child, still crouched on the road, missed the memo, the otherwise very serious looking lady with the staff on the right gave her a friendly boot in the rear. We all had a good laugh at that one.
Once the parade have moved on, people lined up at the War Memorial to place their poppy on one of the crosses.
It was a beautiful day for a Remembrance Ceremony.
