God bless the queen, God save the king

The passing of Queen Elizabeth II was commemorated Monday with a special parade and wreath laying ceremony at the Chatham Cenotaph.

The march began at Royal Canadian Legion Branch 642, and came down King Street to the cenotaph.

A five-plane flyover tribute, a three-gun salute by the Chatham-Kent Police Service Honour Guard, prayers and the singing of 'God Save the King' in tribute to new monarch King Charles III also took place.
