Legion honours fallen comrades

 

Six legion branches came together on May 5 for the Spring Zone convention.

As well as being a chance for the six branches to discuss legion business, the convention was also an opportunity for a special event to commemorate fallen comrades.

Along with an officer in red surge, members of the legions marched from the Sparwood Chamber of Commerce to the cenotaph to honour local comrades Harvey Fraser, Bruce Ramsey, Wayne Brown and Roger Hutton.
