Shaun’s Pilgrimmage of Remembrance

Shaun is a long-time Legion member (25 years!) and Correctional Officer in Agassiz, who took the journey of a life-time touring through France, Belgium and the Netherlands on the Pilgrimage of Remembrance during the summer of 2013.

Throughout the trip he shares experiences and photos with us of many amazing monuments and battle fields both large and small. But it is the individual stories of the ordinary soldiers that strike him the most, and that he is passionate about sharing.
