Wish I'd thought of posting this earlier...

I have two uncles who died in the wars, Pvt. Albin Joseph Sumara (WWI-France, Canadian 4th Mounted Rifles)



and Pvt. Albin Frank Sumara (WWII-Belgium, North Nova Scotia Highlanders).




A great resource / service available to all Canadians who had relatives in the service is the Canadian Virtual War Memorial. Search for your serviceperson, and then add information, photos, etc., to augment the existing record.

A simple memorial in the very small town of Hill Spring, AB. No mention as to which war(s) claimed these mens lives.

I like the red on B&W. It creates the perfect mood. Nice touch!

Is that the cenotaph in Meaford? It's a gorgeous one in my opinion and I have lots of childhood (and young adulthood) memories of being in front of that cenotaph by the old town hall.

Also in the same area (relatively speaking) the small cenotaph in Eugenia at the conservation area by the falls is really nice, too. It was really run down for a number of years but about a decade ago one of the local service clubs led a fundraising effort to restore it, which is a wonderful thing.

Yup, in front of the Meaford town hall.

Here's the top of it:
