The Queen’s community marked Remembrance Day on Friday morning with a special service at Grant Hall.

Led by Chaplain Kate Johnson, staff, faculty, students, and community members filled the hall to listen to a reflection by guest speaker Nathan Thanyehténhas Brinklow, a member of the chaplain’s office and a lecturer in Mohawk language and culture at Queen’s as well as a performance by the Queen’s Choral Ensemble.

At 2 pm on Remembrance Day, Queen's will unveil a commemorative plinth in recognition of the contributions of the 5th Field Company, the first Canadian university military unit, formed in 1909, that served throughout the First World War. Joining the ceremony will be local veterans and military members, including representatives from the Royal Military College of Canada.
