Nanaimo News Bulletin

Painful recollections

Adrian Hovestad places his hand on the head of Ryder McHady, 6, while recalling his boyhood during the German occupation of the Netherlands during the Second World War at a remembrance ceremony Fairview Community School students and staff participated in at the Cenotaph in downtown Nanaimo Friday. Hovestad called McHady to his side to illustrate his size at age six when German forces invaded. Poppy wreaths placed by students at the war memorial were taken to Royal Canadian Legion Branch 10 to be displayed on Remembrance Day. For more Remembrance Day photos, please see Thursday’s issue of the News Bulletin. - Chris Bush photo
