Event description

Description

Join us for a brand-new tour, entitled “Tales from the Trenches – WW1 Soldiers of Little Lake Cemetery”, written by military aficionado Don Down.

World War One, touted as the “war to end all wars”, turned out to be devastating to many communities in Canada. 60,000 Canadian were killed in that war, with some communities losing more than half the men who enlisted.

Many of the fallen, if they could be found, were buried overseas with their comrades. But many families, dissatisfied with public monuments and unable to travel to Europe, wished to memorialize their relatives. So, they erected memorial stones closer to home. The history of these local men who served and perished in the Great War as well as those of some of the survivors become the historical basis of this tour.

Join historian Don Down to hear these heart wrenching stories of military personnel who served for Canada, some of who did not return.
