IceCaps wear jerseys commemorating Beaumont-Hamel

Nearly one hundred years after the tragedy at Beaumont-Hamel, the St. John’s IceCaps are taking to the ice wearing jerseys honouring the Royal Newfoundland Regiment.

The team will appear in the new jerseys this weekend as they face off against the Utica Comets at Mile One Stadium. 

Local graphic designer Troy Birmingham designed the new jersey, which replaces the IceCaps logo with a silhouette of a Royal Newfoundland Regiment soldier kneeling before a ridge.

The jersey keeps the team’s colour palette, which is a reference to its parent club, the Montreal Canadiens.

Rob McCarthy, the manager of the team’s merchandise shop, IceCaps Alley, said he can’t keep the jerseys in stock. 

He said after the store’s initial order of 300 jerseys sold out, and it had to order 200 more.

“It’s a special moment in history … and so people want to celebrate it this summer when they have the bigger event." 

In the run up to the weekend, McCarthy said he spoke with several people involved with the military who dropped by to check out the jerseys. 

"A lot of military people come in here and regale stories of what happened and grandfathers that served in it,” he said. 

During Friday’s game, the Shallaway Youth Choir performed the Ode to Newfoundland, and a special version of the video for the Ennis Sisters song Sing You Home was shown.

Videos played throughout the game showed IceCaps players learning about the history of the Regiment and making commemorative forget-me-nots in honour of the fallen soldiers. 

Although the tragedy occurred long ago, it’s had a lasting affect on people in Newfoundland and Labrador.

Lt.-Col. Paul Furlong of the 1st Battalion of the Royal Newfoundland Regiment said he’s pleased to see the IceCaps honour the troops. 

“I’ve been a member of the regiment for over 30 years and it’s become like a second family to me,” he said. 

“I’m very, very proud of the IceCaps, that they’ve took the initiative, and their team is wearing the commemorative jerseys.”

Prayer for a Fallen Soldier

I saw a soldier kneeling down,
for this was the first quiet place he had found.
He had traveled through jungles, rivers and mud
He’d tasted sweat and shed his blood.

He folded his hands and looked to the sky
I saw his tears, as they welled in his eyes.
He spoke to God, and this is what he said:
“God Bless my men, who now lie dead”

I know not what You have in mind,
but when You judge them, please be kind
when they come before You, they will be poorly dressed
but they’ll walk proudly, for they have done their best.
Their boots will be muddy and their clothes all torn
but these clothes they have so proudly worn.

Their hearts will be still and cold inside,
for they have fought their best and did so with pride.
So please take care of them as they pass Your way
the price of freedom they’ve already paid.

Ehren III.
Two large grey/red granite structures form a portal to the main memorial ground, with the main axis comprising of five main green squares, acting as symbolic graves for the fallen soldiers; actual resting places can be found at the sides and kurgan (Slavic burial mound) underneath the large 30-metre-high statue. At the ends of these large stylised USSR flags kneel two Red Army soldiers, in honour of and respect for their counterparts. In the distance here you can make out the tall statue, depicting a Soviet soldier with a young child in his left hand, a large sword in his right, and his right foot holding firmly his stance over a broken Swastika.

Tagged by @kneel-to-maria. Fuck you (neh. Love you)

One Insecurity: That the people I talk with secretly hate my guts.

Two Fears: Ending up alone. Living without accomplishing anything.

Three Turn-Ons: ???? 1.: When people are really sure of themself. When I don’t have to tell them they’re cute because they know. 2.: Going for only one sexual thing, I guess. (This is going to be so awkward) When my partner can’t stop talking about a certain part of my body, cause they’re really impressed by it. 3.: When somebody loves you so much, they can’t think of anything else.

Four Life Goals: Become a writer who gets to inspire people like how I was inspired by writers. Meeting at least one of my celebcrushes. Ending up with someone I really love. Not losing my top 3 friends.

Five Things I Like: When I finally get inspiration and be able to write for hours. Straight days with barely any sadness. Chocolate. Family (the not-problematic parts). Fluffy animals.

Six Weaknesses: Anxiety. Insecurity. Stubborn. Depression. Low attention span. I’m really annoying.

Seven Things I Love: My friends. Writing. Movies. Kid Loki. @kneel-to-maria (Yeah. You got a different spot than friends). Italian food. Comics.
