Veteran's plaque placed

Postby Waggoner » October 10th, 2014, 11:01 am

A Veterans of the War of 1812 Graveside Recognition programme plaque was placed in Woodstock, NB last week on the grave of John Francis Wentworth Winslow. A native of New Brunswick, he served during the war on the Niagara frontier as a volunteer with the 104th (New Brunswick) Regiment of Foot.

All the best,

Gary
