Firemen memorial mass

Lastnight Valparaiso firemen recalled the names of those lost in service over more of 150 years of organised life in Valparaiso. It was 150 years ago when their first voluntary fireman, Eduardo Farley died in service in our port so Valparaiso's firemen attended in force to the yearly memorial mass for those lost in service.... way too many names especially those 36 lost at the 1953 new year fire... So I was there to play my instruments including bagpipes for those being honoured. More at:
