This website is dedicated to the memory of the tremendous Canadian contribution in both World Wars, and a place of remembrance for all our fallen since 1914.
 
Too many fought and died for us to ever forget. Sacrifices made by those Canadians must not be forgotten. That is my goal, this is my inspiration:

Canadian Military Personnel Killed
First World War: 66,665
Second World War: 46,998
Korea: 516
Peacekeeping: 121
Afghanistan: 157
On September 1 throughout our military history during World War I, World War II and Korea, a total of 257 men and women died in the service of Canada. Every day is a day of remembrance.

Now Remembering
J. BOURGOUIN, Corporal - 1944
R. KIRK, Driver - 1916
A. SYKES, Private - 1916
R. PENNIE, Trooper - 1944
A. ROPER, Trooper - 1944
J. WILSON, Private - 1916
G. DOIRON, Private - 1944
Canadians relied on photos and footage for information and inspiration during the war. Today, they provide us with an invaluable historical record of the war and those who fought it.
