Aldergrove Secondary school students dressed in period military uniforms for the school’s Remembrance Day assembly last week.
Seated in front were veterans from World War II, who spoke to the assembly. Seated, from left are Bud Freeston (World War II veteran, served in the invasion of Italy, the Battle of the Scheldt and the liberation of Holland from Nazi occupation), Henry Furness (lived in London during the Battle of Britain and served in the Royal British Navy in the Mediterranean), Robbie Waisman (Holocaust survivor of Buchenwald, head of the Vancouver Holocaust Education Society) and Aldergrove Legion Sgt. at Arms Dave Eastick (23 years service in Canada’s peacetime Navy).
Standing are ACSS History 12 students, from left, Jamie Milligan (Army), Matt Bunt (Navy), Emily Anderson (Air Force) and Sabrina Amato (WAC).
The uniforms were loaned by Major Ian Newby of Aldergrove’s International Movie Services, except for Bunt’s own RCSCC Columbia Navy Cadets uniform.
