  • Gananoque Remembers– Gananoque, Ontario is a small town situated on the St. Lawrence River in the heart of 1,000 Islands.  It is one of hundreds of communities throughout Canada with war memorials which commemorate more than 110,000 men and women who lost their lives during both world wars. Over a  thousand citizens from Gananoque and surounding areas served in the navy, army, or air force: 83 lost their lives in parts of Canada, and in the battlefields of Europe.  Among the dead of Gananoque include a 15 year old solider, a father of ten, four sets of brothers and a Victoria Cross winner. 
Today the town cenotaph lists the names of those who died and  few citizens are aware of their family backgrounds or their circumstances of their deaths. Geraldine Chase of Gananoque and Bill Beswetherick of Kingston believed it was necessary to collect this information and perpetuate their sacrifices. 	
Gananoque Remembers book is a tribute to those who gave their lives for our freedom.
  • Memorial Page– George Armstrong is honoured on page 157 of the Gananoque Remembers booklet, published on January 31, 2005.
