Our Friendship with Britain MAA
Our Friendship with Britain
    Just outside of Buckingham Palace, London, England, my tour group met with many other Canadians from all across the country. We watched ceremonies that commemorated our close ties with Britain. Below is a monument built by the British government that marks the friendship between our two countries and expresses their thanks for Canada's help in both World Wars.

  The monument reads "In two world wars one million Canadians came to Britain and joined the fight for freedom. From danger shared, our friendship prospers."

Other tour groups from all across Canada gathered here to celebrate this friendship. I met a group from Calgary, Alberta and another from Charlottetown, PEI.
