Do you have a relative who fought in the Great War with the Canadian Expeditionary Force? Many of our grandfathers and great-uncles were part of WWI: Canadians were eager to defend the "homeland," many enlisting just days after the war was announced. In fact, by the end of its four-year duration 418,000 Canadians had fought in the Great War - 60,000 gave their lives "for king and empire" and are buried in the fields of Belgium and France.

The stories of these brave men were often passed down to relatives, and souvenirs from the war, postcards, letters, diaries and photos were often saved. If you have a story or piece of memorabilia associated with one of Canada's WWI soldiers, we want to post it here. Even something as simple as the name of the soldier and his regiment, or where he enlisted, will be included. Help us remember the contribution Canadian soldiers made to the Great War by helping us build an archive of their stories.
