This is a YouTube video giving us some information on this service
at Folkstone, England and Canadian connections with the area.
The annual Canada Day
service took place at Shorncliffe military cemetery on Wednesday July 1,
2009. The graves of 296 Canadian soldiers are buried there, after the
country's troops were stationed at the neighbouring barracks during the
First World War. Civic dignitaries joined representatives from the
Canadian High Commission and veterans for the service. Primary school
children also laid floral tributes. Yourkenttv spoke to Major General
Joe Hincke, commander of the Canadian Defence Liaison Staff, and
Christine Baxter of the Canadian Veterans' Association of the UK.
Our thanks to Bob
Parsons for letting us know about this Canadian connection with this
area of England.
