“Every intelligent person in the world felt that disaster was impending and knew no way of adverting it” -H.G. Wells

…Words that echoed so many years ago still stand true to this day. 2018 will mark the 100th Anniversary of the end of World War One. The “Great War” as it is known, was slaughter on an industrial scale of which the world had never seen before. The British Commonwealth and its allies fought Germany and the Central Powers in a massive struggle mostly along what was called the Western Front. Tens of millions died and were wounded in the four brutal years of constant fighting.

Canada answered the call to arms and through great courage and bravery placed itself on the worlds stage as a major effective fighting force earning many victories for its allies. Sadly, over sixty thousand of our men died and would not return home to their families. Many more would carry the physical and emotional scars for the remainder of their lives. It was to be “The War to End All Wars”.

Flanders - Vimy - Somme - Normandy - Paris
In remembrance of all the war dead we walk through these portals into the battlefields of Passchendaele, the city of Ypres, Sanctuary Wood and other battlefields such as the “Wipers” Salient.

On this journey with us, you will be spending November 11th in Ypres, at the Menin Gate. Since July 1st, 1928, every night The Last Post Association has taken a moment of silence after playing The Reveille, and The Last Post representing a final farewell to the fallen, but also symbolizes the return to daily life at the end of the act of remembrance, and expresses the resurrection to 'eternal life' of the fallen. This November 11th we will join the Last Post Association in never forgetting the sacrifice so many soldiers gave commemorating 100 years at the Menin Gate with wreath laying ceremonies and a remembrance parade.
You will also be visiting the newly dedicated memorial at Vimy Ridge as well as the Somme, Thiepval Memorial and Beaumont Hamel

Join us this Remembrance Day, for the 100th Remembrance of World War I, and involve yourself in truly global congregation to share a Remembrance like no other, and help us commemorate those who have suffered for our peace.
