Legion looking for photos of veterans who have died
The Royal Canadian Legion will build a Virtual Wall of Honour and Remembrance to honour all veterans who have died.
The appearance of the Virtual Wall will coincide with the National Remembrance Day Ceremony, organized by the legion on behalf of all Canadians, and be displayed on the large video screens prior to the start of the ceremony Nov. 11 in Ottawa.
As a way to honour relatives and friends who have served Canada, Canadians are invited to forward a photograph of a veteran who has died to Dominion Command along with the person’s name, years of service, element or force to which he belonged or regiment/unit.
Photos can be sent by mail to Dominion Command, 86 Aird Place, Ottawa, ON, K2L 0A1 (no originals please as they cannot be returned) or electronically to RememberingThem@legion.ca or ALeurMemoire@legion.ca
Any veteran (including those who belonged to the Merchant Navy and of Ferry Command) whose death was attributable to any cause before or after they served (Second World War, Korea, peace support missions, Afghanistan, accidental death in Canada) will be honoured.
