Battle Of The Atlantic commemorated

It was Battle of the Atlantic Sunday at Pt. Pleasant Park and in communities across Canada.

The ceremonies marking the longest battle of World War II paid tribute to the 3,600 Canadians who lost their lives keeping the sea lanes open to Britain during the war. 103 Canadian ships were sunk.

There are fewer and fewer veterans each year attending the ceremonies. A Frigate carrying the ashes of veterans who have died in the last year was delayed by fog before it headed out drop the ashes at sea.
