National War Memorial ceremony

A commemorative ceremony will be held in Ottawa on Monday August 4, 2014 to mark the
100th Anniversary of the beginning of the First World War and the start of Canada's First and Second World Wars Commemoration period. The event serves to launch the National Sentry Program, complete with a General Salute and a Fly Past. Dominion Carillonneur will perform a musical interlude and Interpretation staff dressed in authentic World War uniform will be on-site. Plan to arrive at the National War Memorial by 10:40 am for an 11am start.

Thanks to Mike More for the tip

There are all sorts of commemorative ceremonies being held here in the UK today. We have all been asked by the British Legion to put a light in a window between 10 and 11pm tonight to recall the statement made 4 Aug 1914 by Foreign Secretary Sir Edward Grey: "The lights are going out all over Europe."
