You may have heard that attendance is increasing every year at many Remembrance Day ceremonies at cenotaphs and cemeteries. One of the reasons this is happening is because of people like Tom Bochsler. Tom is using some of the skills acquired over his 65 + years as arguably the areas best photographer, to bring us some magnificent pictures of some important Canadian military sites in Europe. Locations that mark our very important contribution to the Allied victory in both World Wars, plus how we commemorate that achievement here in our local communities.

Unlike some people who have had relatives in the services and have been a part of Remembrance Day services over the years since childhood, Tom has never had a family member in any branch of the military. And Tom’s only connection with weapons, or violence of any kind, was shooting a couple of troublesome varmints with a small gun while a young lad on the family farm.

So, take in this program of peaceful, powerful, and educational images. I’ve seen this presentation and I highly recommend it. I hope you will also find it moving as you remember our heros through Tom’s eyes.
