Local woman missing her pin

A Saanich Peninsula resident who laid a wreath in honour of her father on Remembrance Day is now dealing with a loss of a different kind

A Saanich Peninsula resident who laid a wreath in honour of her father on Remembrance Day is now dealing with a loss of a different kind.

Leah Arrington of Brentwood Bay, attended the Remembrance Day ceremony in Sidney on Nov. 11. She walked in the parade which began at the Mary Winspear Centre and ended at the cenotaph by Sidney Town Hall and laid a wreath in honour of her father who had served the Second World War.

“I laid the wreath in his name but really it was to honour all those who had never had a wreath laid for them and those (veterans) who died after suffering from post traumatic stress disorder like my father did,” Arrington explained.

Sometime during the parade and ceremony, the airplane-shaped brooch Arrington was wearing to commemorate her father who was a bomber fell off and was lost.

“The wingspan of the pin was about two inches and it was very simple — unadorned and undecorated silver metal,” she explained.

Anyone who may have seen the pin or has information about it can call Arrington at 250-652-7685.

“The person I borrowed it from, it was a gift to her from a family member and it was very precious to her. I just want to find it and return it,” said Arrington.
