Bells will ring in Charlottetown on Sunday
Bell ringers will gather on Remembrance Day in Charlottetown as various local churches have been contacted by the Royal Canadian Legion to mark the 100th anniversary of the armistice on Nov. 11, 1918.
Bells will commence at 4:44 p.m., at the going down of the sun.
Peace finally arrived at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month 100 years ago, and the bells of remembrance will recognize the loss to both those who served and civilians.
Allan McLeod of Prince Charles Drive will be among the bell ringers at the Kirk of St. James on Sunday.
In 1945, he and a friend were at the Charlottetown Driving Park when he heard the bells.
“I’ll never forget it, the bells ringing across the city and everyone looking around and (wondering) what it meant,’’ McLeod said.
