Where in the World is UELAC?

“Where in the World is UELAC?” Where in the world are YOU?? With your help, we hope to find out! Take a travel photo of yourself - it would be great if you were wearing UELAC gear, but not mandatory - and we'll feature it online and in an upcoming issue of Loyalist Trails.

First, put yourself in the picture with UELAC Promotional gear. Then, provide a short description of your surroundings - something historical is great, again not obligatory - and send your photo and description to Doug Grant and we'll add you to our UELAC sightings gallery below.

In the meantime, browse our recent submissions below and see if you recognize the people, the places, or both. Click any photo for a larger resolution. Mouse and click the space between the square brackets to reveal the description.

Where in the World?

Answer:   [ Continuing on from "A Towering Figure" last week, the Moat at the Tower of London was filled with “Torch poppies” in early November 2018, to celebrate the 1918 Armistice. As the UK commemorated the centenary of the end of the First World War, an installation at the Tower of London, Beyond the Deepening Shadow: The Tower Remembers filled the moat with thousands of individual flames: a public act of remembrance for the lives of the fallen, honouring their sacrifice.

A Towering Figure

Where is Gov. Simcoe Branch member Doug Grant?

Where in the World?

Answer:   [ The Tower of London is a historic castle located on the north bank of the River Thames in central London. It was founded towards the end of 1066 as part of the Norman Conquest of England. The White Tower, which gives the entire castle its name, was built by William the Conqueror in 1078 and was a resented symbol of oppression inflicted upon London by the new ruling elite. The castle was used as a prison from 1100 until 1952, although that was not its primary purpose. The Tower has served variously as a royal residence, an armoury, a treasury, a menagerie, the home of the Royal Mint, a public record office, and the home of the Crown Jewels of England. ]
