Wall of Remembrance

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old; Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. At the going down of the sun and in the morning; We will remember them. These famous words come from the famous poem, For the Fallen, by Robert Laurence Binyon.

We invite you to add veterans to our interactive Wall of Remembrance website. We hope that by sharing who they were, it will provide us with another opportunity to honour their contribution. We will remember them.
