Carlyle to honour those who served through banner project

The banners are a project of the South East Military Museum.
Banners will once again hang in Carlyle to honour local veterans.

CARLYLE - Banners will once again hang in Carlyle this year in honour of those who have served their country.

In 2022 and 2023, the Carlyle branch of the Royal Canadian Legion worked with Craig Bird of the South East Military Museum (SEMM) on the banner project. 

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

The Carlyle legion is continuing to work on the veterans' banner program for 2024. 

We would like to reach out to all members of the Carlyle community whose family member served, or is 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 or any allied forces.

With the help and co-operation with 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. In order to be sure that the banners can be prepared on time, all information for this year is to be submitted before June 30.

Banners cost $200 and require a photo (preferably in uniform); the name and rank; the unit the individual served with; and the era (such as the First World War, Second World War, the Korean War, the Afghanistan War, a peacekeeping mission, peacetime, etc).

People should also include who they want in the "Remembrance" portion of the banner.

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

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