University community gathers in remembrance

Hundreds of students, faculty, and staff gathered in front of Memorial Hall on Wednesday to pay tribute to Canadian soldiers who fought and fell in the cause of freedom.

Acting students Aine Donnelly and Megan Milette joined professor Lionel Walsh to read letters from archives of the Canadian wartime experience.

The service also included an address by UWindsor president Alan Wildeman, a recitation of the poem In Flanders Fields by drama professor Brian Taylor, playing of The Last Post and Reveille, by trumpet student Amanda Hanson, the University Singers performing O Canada, and concluded with the laying of a wreath below the commemorative plaque in Memorial Hall.
