Attention Paid in Truro

The Portraits of Honour National Tour arrived in Truro, Nova Scotia escorted by several fire trucks, emergency response vehicles, military vehicles and a large cannon bearing Canadian flags.

Surprised locals stopped on the sides of streets and peered out of shop windows to see the passing caravan.  Many fell in behind the caravan, following it to the set –up location for the day at the local Armouries.

Throughout the afternoon a steady stream of visitors came to view the portraits and pay their respects. Many members of the small community expressed their thanks to the tour crew for being the Portraits of Honour to their hometown.

This appreciation for the Portraits of Honour, and the efforts many have made to bring it to the hometown of each of the fallen heroes represented on it, is what keeps the tour rolling down the road.
