Peter Sutton's Visit (2004)

Sixty-three years later, Col Peter Sutton was visiting his daughter in Hong Kong and decided to give his grandsons, Bryan, Michael and Eric Heidinger a valuable history lesson, and in the true Signal Corps traditions, fashioned some "close-order drill" for the lads. Soon the three lads, accompanied by the family were at the Cemetery, where at exactly 1430 hrs a wreath laying ceremony took place. The wreath bearers, Michael and Eric, marched to the cross and turned the wreath over to their older brother, Bryan, who placed the wreath bearing The Signallers Club of Canada ribbon.
