Remembrance Day

Andy | Tuesday, November 11, 2014 | Best Blogger Tips

Every year on November 11, Canadians pause in a moment of silence to honour and remember the men and women who have served, and continue to serve Canada during times of war, conflict and peace. We remember the more than 1,500,000 Canadians who have served throughout our nation’s history and the more than 118,000 who made the ultimate sacrifice.

*****************************************


Some of the 54 Commonwealth member states, such as Canada, the United Kingdom and Australia, observe the tradition of Remembrance Day on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month.

  1. Remembrance Day, Veterans Day, Armistice Day are all labels that mark a way to honor and to provide tributes to heroes in many countries…people who gave "the ultimate sacrifice.>"

  2. I've come across a lot of Canadian war graves in the churchyards I visit in the UK and the Brookwood Cemetery in Surrey

  4. Very nice. I think that maple leaf on the side of the plaque adds to the picture.
