Readers will note Richard writes that he is part of the 23rd Btn now. As happened with a number of battalions raised in the latter years of the war, the 142nd "London's Own" was broken up on reaching England and Richard was transferred to a training and reinforcement Battalion the 23rd. For more information on the 23rd check out http://www.cefresearch.com/matrix/Utilities/reserves/23rd.htm Thanks to the amazing Richard Laughton for this.

The Cenotaph at Strathroy is located in front of the Museum and Library. As you can see it is under renovation and the wreaths on the cenotaph are being watched by the large excavator. Construction fencing protects the public from ending up in the holes. That made for a very unique backdrop for the Air Cadet on the Cenotaph and Vice President of the Sir Arthur Currie Legion, John Fuller as he read the message from the Prime Minister.
