Remembrance Day

Newfoundland_National_War_MemorialSaturday is Remembrance Day – we will be taking part in a number of ceremonies of Remembrance around St. John’s alongside members of the Royal Canadian Legion, Branch #1. Here is a schedule of events:

7:15am – Cadets meet at LCdr Paddon Building.

7:30am – Buses will transport cadets to the Field of Honour at Mount Pleasant Cemetery (James Lane).

8:00am – Ceremony begins at the Field of Honour. After that has finished, the buses will bring the cadets to the Basillica parking lot to prepare for the next service.

9:45am – Cadets will march from the Basillica down Garrison Hill to the Sgts and WOs Memorial.

10:00am – Service begins at the Sgts and WOs Memorial.

10:20am – Parade begins, down Church Hill, east on Duckworth St, down Cochrane St, west on Water St until the National War Memorial.

10:40am – Service begins at the National War Memorial.

11:00am – 2 minutes of silence

When the service ends, the parade will move west on Water Street. Cadets will meet the buses at the end of the route, which will bring them to Royal Canadian Legion Branch #1 on Blackmarsh Road for lunch. After lunch, the bus will bring cadets back to the LCdr Paddon Building for pick-up. We anticipate returning to the LCdr Paddon Building by 1:30pm.

We understand that there are a number of new cadets without uniforms or only with partial uniforms at this point. Uniform parts from our supplier arrive as the sizes are available, but this can be a slow process at times. Cadets without a complete uniform are still welcomed and encouraged to participate and should wear civilian clothes to the parade along with their cadet parka. For all cadets, black gloves are strongly recommended – it is going to be a cold day! We look forward to seeing all cadets on Saturday for these important events.
