Grace McCullough took this photo on a family pilgrimage to the Canadian National Vimy Memorial in France in 2015. Her mother, Janice Palmer of Kentville, says they were moved to find what appeared to be a single maple leaf on the ground by the monument. Palmer’s great uncle fought in and survived the Battle of Vimy Ridge.
