The Drumhead Service is a tradition that dates back to the 1700's.  On the battlefields, there was often no way for soldiers to attend church, to worship and pray.  Instead, the Padre or Chaplain would hold a "Drumhead Service" - creating a temporary altar on the field, using military drums draped with the regimental or National flags.  Drumhead Services are still held, as a salute to those who fought on battlefields around the world, and made the ultimate sacrifice.  Zone F-2 is the only Zone in Ontario carrying on this tradition.
