Remembrance Day in Vankoughnet

Post date: Nov 21, 2012 11:18:51 PM

A Remembrance day service was held at the St. David's Presbyterian Church in Vankoughnet on Sunday November 11th 2012. Geordie Reid played a heart wrenching bag pipe lament to honour those who have served.

A wonderful display was also setup with community provided pictures of loved ones who served in the Armed Forces.

Did you know the Norweigen Air Force trained at the Bracebridge airport in world war 2? Many of the flyers could be seen zooming around the sky's over Vankoughnet. Wings of Norway is a Documentary about the Norweigen Air Force.

Do you have some local war history to share?
