The 2013 Joggins Legion Branch # 4 Remembrance Day banquet was one for the history books. Like many communities across Canada, the Joggins legion held their annual Remembrance Day service at the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month in recognition of its late veterans who fought in World War I, World War II and the Korean War. What made its banquet extra special was its focus on Korea. Here are some of the images from Monday at the Joggins Legion.
