  • Photo of Murray Wilson– Fl/Lt Murray G. Wilson, RCAF, missing in action, Cologne, Germany August 8, 1944.  Photo courtesy of Hillcrest High School - "Stairway of Honour" project.  Eighty-four large portraits of students from the Second World War line both sides of the 55 stairs leading up to the school's auditorium. Most of the portraits have the rank and year of death of the student. Some portraits explain how the soldier died, but many were MIA and presumed dead. Each year, teachers from the grade 10 Canadian History course take their students to the stairway around November 11th to complete a project that deals directly with the pictures on the Stairway of Honour.
