As band administrator Don McDonald looks on Hugh Fraser Jr. 
proudly displays the commerarative plaque presented to him by the band on 
being awarded the 3rd bar, Canada Decoration. This is indeed a rare honour, 
as the 3rd bar is only given to those with 42 years of service.

An amazing achievement, Sgt. Fraser. Well-deserved!
