For last year’s Rememberance Day, I visited our only civic cemetery, Mountain View, since it is actually quite close to where I live. Here are some of the pictures I took on that day.

I have scheduled this to be posted at 100th anniversary of The Armistice. So, there is a very good chance that when this post goes live, I am actually at the very same place, again walking about.

As the only city-run cemetery in Vancouver, it contains a section maintained by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission to inter the war deads from both World Wars:

Another (far larger) section is maintained by Veterans Affairs Canada, to inter Canadian Armed Forces veterans who have survived the conflicts:

Finally, the part that I admit touched me the most... the “Infant Area” that was recently landscaped into a dry stream bed, and placed here are carved stones displaying the names (or lack thereof) for each infant who were stillborn or died shortly after birth, and then buried here:
