Guest Posted 20 November , 2013 Share Posted 20 November , 2013 Apologies in advance if I'm posting this out of turn. When I initially signed up I saw a thread for a mandatory first post but it seems to have vanished once I registered. This year Canada Remembers, an outreach branch of Veteran Affairs Canada challenged people to use social media to recognize Canadian soldiers from the Virtual Memorial Honour Roll for 30 days instead of just Nov 11http://www.veterans.gc.ca/eng/collections/virtualmemI took this on in the form of a daily blog post - choosing one soldier per day, who joined the Canadian forces during WW1 and I'm attempting to do a bit of background on them. I'm on Day 22 currently and I am learning more everyday. In searching for one particular member of the RAF I found this forum and realized what a wealth of information is shared here. I am not a military expert, just an amateur genealogist so there is often parts of records that I don't comprehend. I'm hoping that if I have specific questions, someone here maybe able to answer them or clarify things for me so that I can better understand.Their stories are sad and beautiful and I wish I had time to do more in depth research. I'm posting the link here so that if if anyone recognizes these men or has anything to add, I encourage you to post it to the comment section of my blog or email me so I can add it to the original blog post, with full credit. The blog is here:http://therisingvillage.blogspot.ca/ Thanks! Heather Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
