Air Cadet Vigil in Hanover

Hanover | by Robyn Garvey  

Cadets will stand guard at Cenotaph in town from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. for Remembrance Day.

From sun up to sun down the Hanover Air Cadets are standing guard in a silent vigil at the Cenotaph in Hanover.

The young cadets in full uniform, standing perfectly still holding their rifles and bayonets with arms crossed and heads bowed down creates a very powerful visual for the public.

For Sergeant Daniel Weppler is all about paying respect and tribute to all those who have and currently are serving our Country.

Flight Sergeant Robbie Hann calls the 12 hour vigil a small sacrifice to pay to honour all of our fallen heroes, our veterans and those in military service.

This silent vigil has become an annual tradition for the Hanover Air Cadets, one that many cadets greatly treasure.

Weppler says the community is very moved by the vigil, saying it helps bring Remembrance Day alive for many.

Hann agrees saying the visual impact on the community is quite powerful.

The Air Cadets vigil runs from 7 am till 7 pm, the cadets will be taking shifts throughout the 12 hour time period.

The public is invited to participate in this morning 11 am Remembrance Day Service at the Hanover Cenotaph.

For the Air Cadets participating in the silent vigil, it is small token of their great appreciation to all those who have served our nation.
