Hi everyone,

I've put together a Remembrance Day video tribute using period postcards and photos that you might be interested in checking out. The images show First World War recruits marching through the streets of Victoria to the CPR steamships that would take them to their trains in Vancouver. You'll find a lot of young faces staring back at you ... I hope the video serves as a poignant reminder of their courage and sacrifice.
