D-Day remembered in Langley City
The invasion of France on June 6, 1944 was remembered at a moving ceremony outside the Langley branch of the Royal Canadian Legion on Friday night.
Walter Poustie outlined the considerable Canadian involvement in D-Day, from paratroopers and naval activity to the men who stormed Juno Beach. Two D-Day veterans. Les Randall and John Swityk, put candles of remembrance on the cenotaph at the Legion entrance on 56 Avenue.
Wreaths were laid, and the Last Post was played, as those present took time to remember the importance of that pivotal Second World War battle, which took place 70 years ago.
