A member of the 1813 Cranbrook Cadet Corps – Lord Strathcona’s Horse lays a wreath on behalf of three representatives of the Canadian Forces — Sergeant Rick Lowe, Colonel Joe Kotlarz and Major Leah Byrne — who were presenting the wreath in honour of Cpl. Nathan Cirillo and Warrant Officer Patrice Vincent, who earlier this fall were killed in attacks in Ottawa and near Montreal, respectively.

Remembrance Day ceremonies in Cranbrook were held at the Cenotaph in Rotary Park under a clear sky and in crisp temperatures, which did not stop the usual large crowds attending. Larry Warren served as Master of Ceremonies. Clive Brown, President of the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 24 Cranbrook gave the address and memorial charge, and Padre Fraser Coltman the prayer. Trumpeter Murray Knipfel performed “The Last Post,” and piper Dan McKinnon the lament. Music was provided by the Mount Baker Secondary School band under the direction of Evan Bueckert, and the Cranbrook Grade 5 Mass Choir under the direction of Larry Dureski.
