Lest We forget

Do you know someone who enlisted in World War I in Canada?

•• Search the WWI CEF database ••

Do you know a Canadian killed while serving his country?

•• Search the Commonwealth War Graves database ••

My wife's grandfather, a member of the Canadian Cyclist Battalion, (pictured, in the kilt) was wounded by German shelling and carried around shrapnel from WWI for the rest of his life.

And he was one of the lucky ones... two of my grandfather's older brothers (with four young children between them) were killed in Belgium and France, respectively.
