Wanderings Of A Canadian Loon Through The National Capital And Beyond
Wednesday, November 13, 2019
Today I have more of the window displays at this shop in Hintonburg marking Remembrance Day, with a variety of items commemorating the times of world wars and military conflicts. Tomorrow I move over to the national service of remembrance.
I loved poppies all my life - innocently.ReplyDelete
Now I certainly have an other, important aspect.
As a boy, I recall having one of those posters showing various kinds of military aircraft hanging on my bedroom door.ReplyDelete
The poppies are made nice!
Uma bela homenagem e aproveito para desejar a continuação de uma boa semana.ReplyDelete

A nice continuation of yesterday's post.ReplyDelete
Those are great displays.ReplyDelete
Those poppies carry so much meaning. I'm thinking they are more popular in Canada than USA these days. JanisReplyDelete
