Despite the cold, wind, rain, hail and snow, a good crowd turned out for the Kincardine Legion Remembrance Day service at the Cenotaph in Tiverton, Sunday afternoon.

The service began with the singing of "O Canada," followed by "Last Post" played by trumpeter Ray Kester, two minutes of silence, the "Lament" played by piper Jennifer Farrell of the Kincardine Scottish Pipe Band, "Reveille" by Kester, and the placing of wreaths.

Rev. Jim Weir, Legion padre, wrapped up the service with prayer and benediction.

Legion Remembrance Day services were held Monday, Nov. 11, in Kincardine, Ripley and Lucknow, as well as a second ceremony in Tiverton hosted by the Tiverton and District Ratepayers' Association and Tiverton Ministerial Association.
