The Morden Legion is marking 80 years this year.


And sadly, very few original members are still alive to celebrate it.

However, Spokesperson Maurice Butler says that does not mean the Legion as a whole is dying and that is evident through their Remembrance Day Banquet.

Former President Jack Duncan, who's father was also president in Morden will be the guest speaker.

Butler says having descendants of veterans become members is creating a great perpetuation for them.

He adds it's great to see the support given to the remaining vets by the public through things like the Remembrance Day service and laying of the wreaths.
