Honouring Dad on Remembrance Day

I'm lucky.  My Dad survived the 2nd World War and is still alive and well today.   He served in the Navy as a young man - a communications officer.  On November 11th our family got together at the Beechwood Cemetery to remember and honour those who gave their lives for our freedom.  This is a photo essay of that day.
