Riverview, NB

A long line of 128 Canadian flags now flutter along Hillsborough Road in Riverview NB, honouring Canada's fallen soldiers. The flags are part of the national Flags of Remembrance campaign where cities across Canada raise 128 flags to honour the 128,000 soldiers killed in battle since the Boer War.

In Riverview, the flags were planted on a grass park east of the Gunningsville Bridge next to a memorial that honours HMCS Coverdale, a naval base during the Second World War where sailors specialized in eavesdropping on enemy radio conversations and decoding them.

CFS Leitrim Anchor Plaque unveiled 23 June 2016

For a number of years the anchor in the attached picture sat a Leitrim after being shipped from Halifax. It now has a permanent home inside the fence at the front entrance of CFS Leitrim and a bronze plaque has been erected to honour all our tradesmen who have served and will continue to serve at sea on Canadian and Allied ships in support of the SIGINT mission. The plaque was unveiled at a brief ceremony after the 75th anniversary parade on Thursday.   fm Bob Todd

   

  Plaque inscription reads.  "This anchor is dedicated to the countless Signals Intelligence Operators who have proudly served Canada by sailing onboard Her Majesty’s Canadian Ships and allied vessels in direct support of naval operations throughout the world. These personnel include the Communicator Supplementary trade that was created in 1948, those who served in the trade of Radioman Special that stood up in 1960, the men and women who have sailed as Communicator Research Operators from the occupation’s inception in 1968 to the present day, and those who will continue in the future. “Ready Aye Ready”"
