Lest We Forget

Nov 10, 2018
Tomorrow marks 100 years since the end of The Great War. Most Canadian cemeteries include graves of veterans of many wars. Today we present a small sampling of memorials to some of Canada’s war dead.

If your community has a cenotaph or other memorial to fallen soldiers, we invite you to submit photos and names to be included next year.
