Comrade Troy Bond, leader of the annual Highway of Heroes Motorcycle Ride shared his story for this year…. (edited)
This year we did not travel the Highway of Heroes because of COVID-19 and I did not have approx 25 bikes following me to Trenton and we did not meet up with a couple hundred of bike riders to travel west back...
I felt that although Decoration Day was cancelled this year our Veterans still deserved to have flags placed at their graves.
With the help of fellow Legion Members Moe Ferris, Roy Fagel, Wayne Rahn, Alan Miller, and his wife Bernice, we walked around Woodlawn Cemetery and placed approximately 300 Canadian flags at as many graves as we could find.
C J Taylor is my Great Great Grandfather a Volunteer 85th Nova Scotia Highlander who went up Hill 145 Vimy Ridge in WW1. He was in the last wave to go up the hill when others before his unit had not completed their mission. He was a member of a 3-man Lewis Gun crew. When his commander and other crew member were KIA he continued with the machine gun and ammunition taking out all enemy instalments he encountered and taking a post to hold it overnight. He did survive the mission and the war. And he was awarded the MM for his actions on Hill 145. later moving to Guelph... He is buried at Woodlawn Memorial Park...
