Two homecoming motorcade processions were held in Halifax this evening for Capt. Brenden MacDonald, Capt. Maxime Miron-Morin, Sub.-Lt. Matthew Pyke and Master Cpl. Matthew Cousins.

The four were among the six Canadian Armed Forced members who died after a military helicopter crashed in the Mediterranean Sea in April. The military said Saturday that remains from all on board had now been identified.

The homecoming for Sub.-Lt. Abbigail Cowbrough was held in Nova Scotia in May and a homecoming for Capt. Kevin Hagen will be held in Victoria on Saturday.

The departure time for today's processions began at 6:45 p.m. local time at the Halifax Stanfield International Airport. The procession was originally scheduled to begin at 5:45 p.m. but was delayed one hour. It ended just before 9 p.m.

The procession for Pyke, who was from Truro, N.S., ended at Mattatall-Varner Funeral Home at 55 Young St. in Truro.

MacDonald, Miron-Morin and Cousins went to the Atlantic Funeral Home in Dartmouth.

The families were joined by military and civilian dignitaries in police-escorted motorcades.
