On Remembrance

As a brief aside from my usual wargaming related stuff, today is Remembrance Day here in Canada, where we honour all Canadian soldiers who fell, and survived, in wars both past and recent. I will forever be grateful to them that the only war I ever need experience is the harmless tabletop variety.

Requiscat in pace.

PS: and in light of some…well, recent events here in Canada, I will simply say this: poppies are a nice gesture, but they are not, and never have been, mandatory for respecting those who fought and fell. Poppies should never be used as a barometer for patriotism or “Canadianness.”
