Members of the Hyack Anvil Battery keep a safe distance during the traditional 21 "gun" salute to Queen Victoria on Monday at Queen's Park Stadium. This is the 140th anniversary of the unique salute to Queen Victoria. The anvil battery was started by New Westminster firefighters when cannons weren't available for a traditional salute to the Queen's birthday.
