Remembering is not just for November 11th.  On Friday, October 22, the Royal Canadian Legion Branch #134 will specially honour those Canadian service men and women who perished while serving on Canadian soil.

This date was selected to signify our respect to those who guard Canada, readily serving on a daily basis in the armed forces. They have given their lives, not in war or during a peacekeeping deployment, but in the inherently dangerous everyday duty of keeping our nation safe and strong. For this service, “We Will Remember Them.”

Their names are displayed in two volumes within the memorial box at the Legion Branch’s main entrance. Volume one lists those who served from the formation of the Canadian Armed Forces on 1 February 1968 to present. Volume two includes those who served between 1911 and 1 February 1968.

We request that the public contact RCL Branch #134 via email or mail to ensure the name(s) of their loved ones who have given their lives while serving Canada have been included. All inquiries will be answered.
