My Grandparent's Marker

Remembrance Day
November 11 in Canada is Remembrance Day - a day to think about those who served our country.
A local group has a wonderful project where they put each former soldier now interred in local cemeteries in a database, and on Novemeber 11, the local school kids put little Canadian flags on the markers.
My grandfather, Emerson Ladd Curry, was a Sergeant in the First World War, and was injured at Passchendaele. He came home, found out his Dad had died, and then went back to England and married my Grandmother - what the Immigration Museum terms as a "war bride".
They came back to Canada in August in 1919, and Grampy became a minister after graduating from Acadia University. He also served Canada in WW2, and was a Chaplain overseas, stationed mainly in England.
Grampy didn't talk much about the wars - but he did always love the quote “live in the virtue of that life and power that takes away the occasion of all wars”.
Lest We Forget.
