Banners will once again be hanging in Carlyle this year to honour veterans.

CARLYLE - In 2022, the Carlyle branch of the Royal Canadian Legion worked with Craig Bird of the South East Military Museum (SEMM) on a project which was a way to honour military veterans. 

This project consisted of posting banners around Carlyle with photographs of veterans. These banners were purchased by either family members or the Carlyle legion, and were hung prior to Remembrance Day.

The Carlyle legion is once again working on a veterans’ banner program in 2023. We would like to reach out to all members of the Carlyle community whose family member(s) served, or currently serving, in the military and would like to honour them. 

Our goal is to recognize and remember veterans who served, or are serving, with the Canadian Armed Forces. With the help and co-operation of the Town of Carlyle, these banners will be hung in Carlyle at different locations around town from September until one week after Remembrance Day.

The banners can be purchased by family members, employers or Legion branches.   Banners cost $200 and require the following information:

•Photo (preferably in uniform). The legion might already have one;

•Name and rank;

•Unit served with (if known);

•The era, such as First World War, Second World War, Korean War, Afghanistan War, peacekeeping mission, peacetime service, etc.; and

•Who you want in the “Remembrance“ portion of the banner.

If you would like to share your banner with another veteran, the cost would be $100.  They would place one photo and information on each side of the banner.

For more information, please contact Nedra Clark at 306-453-2827 or email at gnclark23@gmail.com.

Please consider honouring a veteran in this manner, whether they be a family member, an employee or a past employee.
