Deceased veterans will be honoured

Virtual Wall of Honour to be built in honour of lost veterans

  • Oct. 10, 2012 5:00 a.m.

The Royal Canadian Legion will build a “Virtual Wall of Honour and Remembrance” to honour all deceased veterans.

The appearance of the “Virtual Wall” will coincide with the National Remembrance Day Ceremony, organized by the Legion on behalf of and for all Canadians. It will be displayed on the large video screens prior to the start of the actual ceremony on Nov. 11, 2012 and those thereafter.

As a way to honour their relatives and friends who have served Canada, Canadians are invited to forward a photograph of the deceased veteran to Dominion Command along with his or her name, years of service, element or force to which the departed 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 deceased 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.
