McClelland was one of two trumpeters that “doubled” the sound of Last Post and Rouse which echoed through Victory Square during the ceremony in downtown Vancouver on Remembrance Day. Joe Foster (left), also with the VF & RS Band, was the second trumpeter and was located at ground level near the podium.
RUSI Vancouver President Cam Cathcart emceed the ceremonies, keeping the program moving smoothly on a beautiful Vancouver fall morning.
