Remembrances: Canada and the Second World War

Creator(s): Canadian Heritage Information Network

In World War II, Canada rose far above its size and national resources and sent one of the largest forces into battle of any commonwealth nation. Canada's Second World War contribution is the subject of this moving exhibit detailing the lives and untimely deaths of Canadian soldiers, merchant sailors and fliers in the Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF). From the tragic battle for Hong Kong to the heroic Battle of Britain and the subsequent D-Day landings on the beaches of Normandy, members of the Canadian Army, Royal Canadian Navy and Royal Canadian Air Force, distinguished themselves and solidified Canada's place in military history.
