The Claresholm branch of the Royal Canadian Legion held their annual Flag Day at the Claresholm Cemetery on Sunday, June 3. Each year, on the Sunday before the anniversary of D-Day, which is June 6, the Legion cleans the graves of veterans buried in the cemetery and plants a Canadian flag at each one. Here, Brian Thibeau, the Legion’s sergeant-at-arms salutes after planting a flag. D-Day began the Allied invasion of Normandy, which would eventually lead to the defeat of the Nazis in the Second World War. “It’s a way for the Legion to say thank you for your service,” said Margaret Smith, president of the Legion.
