PostSubject: Found a coin I thought I lost   Sun Aug 13, 2017 4:32 pm

So I was going through a old photo album that I have that my mom gave me, It has photos of us as kids and stuff like that. Well I haven't looked at it for years as it was in a box in the storage room I was clearing, as I went through it I found an item I thought I lost. To most its just a coin but for me it's something special. After the wedding of Prince Charles and Lady Diana they came to Canada. I was in the air cadet's at the time in N.S. we were in formation when they got off the plane, both of them stopped to talk to a few of us and they gave us all this coin. Diana was really nice to talk to so was Charles, they personally handed all of us the coins, I was so happy that I found it as it brought back great memories of that day. The thing I didn't know until recently was there were two coins made one was copper and the ones they handed out were silver ones, now it is with all my other cool coins I have.




Just wanted to share that with all of you

Thanks guys it did make my day, I was very glad I met them. It also made me very sad that she was killed. I remember hearing it on the TV it was like 9/11 the image is so clear I will never forget how I felt.
