The Victoria County Historical Society in Lindsay hosted a very special event from May 13th - 15th; Where Duty Leads: Waving Off The 109th.

It commemorated the one-hundredth anniversary of when young men serving in the 109th Battalion from across the Kawartha Lakes and Haliburton Counties, marshalled in Lindsay before departing for the war-torn fields of Europe.

To help commemorate the event, four World War I replica aircraft from the Great War Flying Museum at the Brampton Airport (CNC3) flew into the Kawartha Lakes Municipal Airport (CNF4).

Members of the public had an opportunity to view the aircraft and chat with the pilots of these amazing flying machines.
