Flag Raising At Jervis Bay/Ross Memorial Park

On a brisk morning in East Saint John, real estate agents and veterans gathering to see a Canadian, New Brunswick and Armed Forces flag go up at Jervis Bay/Ross Memorial Park.
The flags, hardware and 75 trees givien to the park and the Jervis Bay Legion from the Saint John Real Estate Board.
Jervis Bay Legion President Terry Murphy tells CHSJ News the HMCS Jervis Bay began as a cruise liner in Australia.

He says the ship was brought to Saint John and refitted here and then in Halifax it ran into a German battleship called the Admiral Sheer.

Murphy invites everyone to join them for their Remembrance Day ceremony next Friday at the Graham Street cenotaph and to come by their Bayside Drive Legion later in the day.
