    I attended a small but moving Remembrance Day ceremony in Toronto held at Fort York (the main ceremony being the one held at City Hall). Re-enactors were dressed as soldiers from the 1800s, and World War 1. Veterans of World War 2, and current servicepersons, were also in attendance. As part of the ceremony the poem In Flanders Field (written by WW1 Canadian soldier John McCrae) was read aloud: this is a traditional part of Canadian Remembrance Day ceremonies.

    Here are some of the pictures I took. The conditions werenÂ’t the greatest: it was raining for part of the ceremony, and the spectators (myself included) were outside of the walls of the old military ceremony while the participants were inside - so I had to shoot over either a wall or a hedge.
