Hundreds of Revelstokians came out to remember fallen soldiers and pay respect to veterans who risked their lives at the Remembrance Day ceremony at the cenotaph on Monday morning.

New Legion Chaplain Ken Jones performed the ceremony at the Revelstoke Cenotaph this year. He opened his address with a note of remembrance for long-serving chaplain Marlene McQuarrie, who passed away in January.

Jones’ speech placed new emphasis on social justice for veterans and everyone affected by the ravages of war. See the Revelstoke Times Review Facebook page for the video of his address.

Check out photos from the ceremony in the slideshow below.
