November 13, 2022. Remembrance Week is always busy at our place. This year was a bit different as we gave a presentation featuring a few of the names listed on the Cenotaph outside the Borden-Carleton Legion, at the Legion’s Remembrance Day indoor service – prior to the placing of wreaths and crosses at the Cenotaph.
…11 photos are still to be found for the names on the Cenotaph….
There are 48 names from WWI and WWII listed on the Cenotaph outside the Borden-Carleton Legion. Unfortunately, photos for 9 from WWI and 2 from WWII have not been found. The story of each one has been told in previous postings on this blog.

… We attend Remembrance Day ceremonies in Borden-Carleton and Kinkora…..
November 11, 2022 was a cool day for the Remembrance Day service at the Legion in Borden-Carleton, Prince Edward Island.
In the afternoon, members of the Legion attended the Remembrance Day ceremony in Kinkora.
…Remembrance Day didn’t end with the two ceremonies!…
After we returned home in the late afternoon, cold and tired, we learned that CTV News wanted to interview Pieter during a live broadcast. So, after a short rest, Pieter was interviewed by Todd van der Heyden of CTV news.

Remembrance Day may be over for another year, but Pieter’s research work continues. If you have photos and information to share about Canadian soldiers, please contact Pieter at email@example.com, comment on the blog, or send a tweet to @researchmemori1.

Are you only looking for those few names? I have info on a cousin from WWII
Hi James, Thank you for your query. The 11 names listed on the posting you read relate to photos missing for those on the Cenotaph outside the Borden-Carleton Legion.
At present Pieter is researching:
a) WWII Canadian soldiers/airmen buried in The Netherlands
b) WWII Canadian soldiers/airmen buried in the Canadian War Cemetery in Adegem, Belgium
c) Prince Edward Islanders who served in the military.
If your cousin is in one of those research areas, please do send in the information you have and Pieter will take a look at it. You can email him at email@example.com……. Daria
