One of the things I love most about my town is the ability to have met and get to know some folk at Canada's Royal Military College. It sits across the harbour from my window at work and the fourth year cadets organize the annual charity vintage base ball game. Today was the final day of their graduation process and I got over to the college to witness the final ceremony, the march through the arch.
We came early as family members gathered. Brass showed up and soon the bagpipes were heard leading this year's class down towards the memorial that names each of their colleagues since the 1870s who have given their life. Above is a hat. It was thrown to my feet by a newly minted 2nd lieutenant who got a little over enthused. Usually your hat goes on your sword when you pass under the arch. I got it back to him.
A nicer bunch of you men and women you will never meet. Canada's pride.
