Video: Truro D-Day ceremony held outdoors, despite heavy rain


TRURO, N.S. —

A small group of people stood around the Truro Cenotaph in the pouring rain Thursday morning to remember those who took part in the D-Day invasion.

A colour party from the Royal Canadian Legion, Branch 26, took part and branch president Grant O'Leary laid a wreath in memory of those who died. A second wreath was laid by a private individual and O Canada and The Last Post were played as water dripped from umbrellas and caps.

Ceremonies were held across Canada today to marked the June 6, 1944 D-Day landings in Normandy, France, during the Second World War.
