Lest We Forget

National War Memorial, Ottawa. Circa 1939-1945.

Canada’s National War Memorial was officially unveiled in Ottawa in 1939 to commemorate Canadians who served in the First World War. This photo, originally from the collection of an unidentified member of No. 9 Company, Veterans Guard of Canada, was taken at a service sometime between 1939 and 1945.

Remembrance Day may be very different this year but I hope all can find some time to pause and remember.
