Myles Mansell Road Dedication

Myles Mansell street dedication Feb 19 2011

Nancy and I attending a street dedication to our son Myles by the city of Langford on Feb 19/11.

Our son was killed in Afganistan on April 22 2006.
Langford and the 5th Field Artillery Regiment that Myles belonged to held a beautiful ceremony.
There was approximately 100 family, friends, and well wishers there. Students from Belmont High School, were Myles and his two brothers attended along with an approx 40 to 50Canadian Army Veterans Motorcycle club on their bikes. The 5th Field Artillery were represented by at least 35 people, both  reserves and regulars, along with a very nice military band. Commanding officer Lt-Col. Scott Wisdahl led the ceremony in a very professional and respectful manner. Langford city council was in full or near full attendance and acting Mayor Lillian Szpak gave a very nice speech.
Our family was very appreciative of all those that participated and worked very hard to bring this road and memorial plaque together.
We are quite sure Myles would have been very pleased.
