Moncton remembers fallen Mounties Add to ...

Thousands attend regimental funeral for three RCMP constables killed last week

June 10, 2014

Honouring the three Mounties slain on June 4, thousands of RCMP officers and community members gathered at a Moncton stadium for the regimental funeral for Constables Fabrice Gévaudan, David Ross and Douglas Larche.

In a sea of red, dark green, and navy, officers stood in silence as the three flag-draped caskets were carried to the front of the coliseum. See our coverage of the event here.
