YOU ARE INVITED TO THE
 
COMBINED 400/411 SQUADRON
 
PHOTO OP AND INSTALLATION
 
OF THE SQUADRON STANDARDS
 
WEDNESDAY – 28 AUG.
 
AT THE
 
HALL OF COLOURS
BEECHWOOD CEMETERY
CANADIAN NATIONAL MILITARY CEMETERY
OTTAWA
  
1;30 FOR 2;00
 
FOR THE INSTALLATION OF THE STANDARDS
 
After the photo Op – the Standards will be turned over to the DND National Military Cemetery Liaison Officer  
 
All arrangements have been made for this event at the Hall of Colours.
 
The final support brackets for both Standards will be in place in the Hall and the Standards will be put in place while we are there.  We will gather and watch.
After the Standards are in place – there will be a moment of silence for fallen members.
 
I will be travelling the 417 across the city to St. Laurent Blvd.- go north – the cemetery is far down and on the left side – once inside the grounds - follow the yellow line to the admin area.  The Hall of Colours is located at the admin area.  Park out front.
 
After – if we have time – the 400ites could go to section 29 – about 5 minutes away – to the grave of CO Van Vliet – he took the squadron to war from Rockcliffe in 1940.
 
Please – please – RSVP
