Cedar Hill Field of Honour

October 22, 2018



On October 20th Membership of Lancaster Branch # 69 with the assistance of members of 1777 Army Cadets as well as many other people placed White Crosses and then Canadian Flags on graves of VETERANS.  We started at the Cenotaph at Cedar Hill Field of Honour at 10:00am. Saint John District Padre David Kierstead and Saint John District Sgt at Arms Henry D’Eon conducted a short service to Honour our VETERANS.  With somewhere around 40 people young and old assisting about 700 White Crosses were placed by the grave markers at the Field of Honour in front of and around the Cenotaph.

These White Crosses were made by Ridgewood Veterans with the assistance of Ed Sullivan and Henry D’Eon.

            When the White Crosses were all placed we then placed Canadian Flags on the Graves of other Veterans that are buried in the Cemetery.

We are looking at getting a total of 2,000 White Crosses.

            When we finished placing flags at Cedar Hill Cemetery we moved on to ALL other Cemetery’s in West Saint John. If you know of a Veterans grave that we may have missed, we do have more Canadian Flags at the branch.

            We thank all who came out to help, we will be REMOVING the Crosses / Flags on SATURDAY NOVEMBER 17 weather permitting. 

  More hands make quick work, so it would be great to have a good response to help remove the crosses & flags.
