“Three Soldiers from Islington and the Origins of Remembrance Day” Presentation by Richard Jordan

November 10 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm EST

“Three Soldiers from Islington and the Origins of Remembrance Day” – A Presentation by Richard Jordan

Join the residents of Tapestry at Village Gate West as they learn the true story of three men with strong ties to the village of Islington who participated in four of Canada’s wars. The Rev. R.W.E. Greene fought in the 1866 Fenian invasion and was later immortalized by political scientist Stephen Leacock. Col. J.E.L. Streight served as a Captain with the 3rd Battalion in France. At the Battle of Ypres, he was captured by the enemy and sent to thirteen different POW camps in Germany, which he managed to escape and was recaptured seven times. He eventually became a Member of Parliament. Major Stewart B. East served with the 48th Highlanders in Italy and became the most decorated Canadian padre in World War 2. All three men went on to become pillars of the Islington community.
