Remembrance Day ceremonies were held today, Nov. 11, in Nanaimo.
A few hundred people gathered at the cenotaph at Dallas Square in downtown Nanaimo for the ceremonies, which included pipe and drum and concert band pieces, anthems, songs, prayers and oaths, a gun salute, a moment of silence and a wreath-laying ceremony.
Among the veterans in attendance was Victor Osborne, born Nov. 11, 1918, who got to hear a rendition of ‘Happy Birthday’ as he turned 103.
