Remembering 100 Manitobans who died in World War I

To commemorate the 100th anniversary of the start of the First World War, I am working on a series of blog posts and radio shows featuring 100 Manitobans who were killed in action or died as a result of the war. Their names and links will be added below as their posts are added.


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.
Robert Laurence Binyon, 1914
