I have shots today taken close to the National War Memorial on Remembrance Day. I was up on Wellington Street northwest of the Memorial, an area I usually go to, and this was a good spot. Beforehand, this was a marshaling point for the parade, with bagpipers leading the way. The Memorial itself lingers in the background of the second to fifth shots. The veterans followed them on course to their place for the ceremony. Even in their nineties, these men still have the sense of the soldier about them.
The ceremony itself was very emotional (you can watch it here if you like), and the veterans marched back this way for the formal review by the Governor General, followed by other military units. The crowds applauded them and called out their thanks.
Later after visiting the War Museum (photos of that to come in December), I returned to the Memorial after the sun had set. Poppies adorned the Tomb Of The Unknown Soldier, wreaths were placed around the Memorial steps (the two below were placed by the Governor General and the Silver Cross Mother, a tradition that dates back decades- this year's Silver Cross Mother lost her son while he was on duty in Afghanistan), and the Memorial was lit up for the night. Many people were still placing poppies, hours after the ceremonies.
