Remembrance day services in Regina took place on Saturday.
Hundreds of Regina people either paid their respects outside at Victoria park, or indoors at the Brandt Centre.
John Hicks is a war veteran who served during the Korean conflict, and says he’s glad to see traditions continue.
“I’ve been doing this now since 1949, I started as an army cadet many many years ago, then I was about five years in the regular air force, then I come back to this part of the world and I served the last 62 years with the Royal Canadian Air Cadets.”
Hicks says it feels good to see people still remember.
“It’s nice to see the younger generation is starting to remember the things many of the generations have forgotten.”
This year’s Remembrance day ceremonies highlighted the 100th anniversary of the battle of Vimy Ridge, which is seen as a defining moment in Canada’s history, and a key turning point in World War One.
