Submissions for Virtual Wall of Honour and Remembrance for 2014 ends on Oct 30th

Oct 1, 2014

OTTAWA, ON, OCTOBER 1st , 2014 – For the past three years, The Royal Canadian Legion has been asking Canadians to Remember and help build a “Virtual Wall of Honour and Remembrance” by sending in their photos to Dominion Command.

In all, more than 1,500 photos have been submitted to the Legion to be featured in its virtual wall. In order to process all of these photos that have been amassed over the past year and have the virtual wall ready for the Remembrance Day Ceremony, a cut-off date on October 30th was deemed necessary. So this is a final reminder for submissions.

The photos submitted should include the name of the deceased, years of service, element or force to which the departed belonged or regiment/unit.

Relatives or friends of a beloved Veteran may have the deceased Veterans’ photo displayed on the “Virtual Wall of Honour and Remembrance.”

Photos, either a high resolution digital image or a hard copy, may be sent to Dominion Command, 86 Aird Place, Ottawa, ON, K2L 0A1 (no originals please as they cannot be returned) or electronically to rememberingthem@legion.ca6 or aleurmemoire@legion.ca7.
