Remembrance section submission reminder

The Review wants to hear from readers whose family members served in the armed forces

We need your pictures.

On Nov. 9, the Peninsula News Review will pay tribute to those who served in the Canadian Armed Forces during First and Second World Wars, the Korea Conflict, Desert Storm, Afghanistan or any of Canada’s peacekeeping missions.

We are in search of pictures of yourself, or a loved one for a special pictorial section honouring our veterans in the Peninsula News Review.

We are particularly interested in people who were Peninsula residents at the time of their service, or are past or present residents of the Peninsula.

We can reproduce black and white or colour photos of almost any size; however we do require an original. We cannot reproduce photocopies of pictures or pictures taken from a newspaper or other printed item. Please ensure that your photos are clearly marked with your name and address.

Mail or bring in your photos, along with the name of the veteran, branch of service, unit, years enlisted, in which theatre he or she served and medals awarded before Nov. 4 to: Remembrance c/o Peninsula News Review #6-9843 Second Street, Sidney BC, V8L 3C7.

Space is limited and publication is not guaranteed.
