Our local, brave troops who never returned home, we remember
“They went with songs to the battle, they were young. Straight of limb, true of eyes, steady and aglow. They were staunch to the end against odds uncounted, They fell with their faces to the foe. 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. They mingle not with their laughing comrades again; They sit no more at familiar tables of home; They have no lot in our labour of the day-time; They sleep beyond England’s foam”
Laurence Binyon, “For the Fallen”

When a letter is all you have
Letter submitted by Paul Henry Lewis
Troops overseas would write letters back home as often as they could, their loved ones eagerly awaiting the mail delivery to see if a letter had arrived. What was once a brief update on the war effort from the battle zone itself, is now a time capsule that many families have preserved. Above: Paul Henry Lewis, of the Carleton and York Regiment in the Canadian Army, writes to his sister Vivian Henry, while stationed in Italy during the Second World War in 1943. “Mother told me that you taught school at Mountain Rd. for awhile last year,” Lewis writes to his sister.
Today we pause for our soldiers and veterans. We can never thank you enough for your service, your commitment & your heroism.

Above: Earl James Piche, of the Algonquin Regiment, writes a poem to his wife, Betty, from the front in Germany during the Second World War. He was killed in action on April 11, 1945. He was obviously looking forward to returning home to his wife: “To hear your voice, to see your face, to walk and talk with you. Picking up the broken fragments, starting life anew,” he writes in his poem. Right: Horace Frederick Knapp Henderson, of the Seaforth Highlanders of Canada, writes to his mother from overseas during the First World War. Henderson’s letter shows the uncertainty of the war front for soldiers, given they were often confused on their location and exact date, as evidenced by Henderson stating he’s “Somewhere in France.” He dated the letter Feb. 3, 1918 but the envelope it was sent in was officially stamped January, 1918, showing Henderson was unsure as to the exact passage of time.
