My cousin, Barry Phipps, has shared three of his photos with me this remembrance day, His work illustrates a love of nature that lends a special touch to the remembrance of those who have fought in wars.
Barry and cousin Michael Osten and my cousin Geri Cole and I have spent time to remember and honour these brave young men.
My father served in the Canadian Navy and took part in the Battle of the Atlantic. He sailed on two corvettes, The Saskatoon and the Matane.
