Dear Joe;

Please find attached some photographs of our recent trip of 18/08/2012 to Cape Fullerton and the grave sites of two of our members who lie there; Reg.#869, S/Sgt. [later Inspector] M. H. E. Hayne & Reg.#4152, Cst. J. Russell, Honour Roll #28.

S/Sgt. M. H. E. Hayne died in 1906 never knowing that he had been raised to the rank of Inspector many months earlier. Constable J. Russell, drowned in an inland lake in 1905 near Cape Fullerton, Hudson Bay.

In the far upper left photograph, in uniform at the grave sites, are Cpl. Mario Turcotte NCO i/c, Chesterfield Inlet Detachment [closest to the camera] and Cst. Patrice Rousseau also a member of Chesterfield Inlet Detachment.

The photos were taken by Lise DesRosiers (Cpl. Turcotte's common law wife)

Enjoy the photos and pick the ones that you want! Mario
