A Gander Vetern Heads to Ottawa for Remembrance Day
There are about a dozen veterans of the 166th Newfoundland Field Regiment still living, nearly seventy years after the end of world war two. Reverend Wesley Oake of Gander is one of them. With a head full of snow white hair, straight as an arrow posture, he's still doing his regiment proud. Last summer, he represented Newfoundland at the memorial service at Beaumont Hamel in France. Now, he's on his way to Ottawa, where he'll march in the Remembrance Day Parade. He's also going to lay a very special wreath in memory of the 166th. Host Leigh Anne Power dropped by his home to speak with him before he left for Ottawa.
