Submissions for Virtual Wall of Honour and Remembrance for 2013 ends on Oct 31st

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Oct. 31, 2013) - For the past two years, The Royal Canadian Legion has been asking Canadians to Remember and help build a "Virtual Wall of Honour and Remembrance" by sending in their photos to Dominion Command.

In all, more than 1,500 photos have been submitted to the Legion to be featured in its virtual wall. In order to process all of these photos and have the virtual wall ready for the Remembrance Day Ceremony, a cut-off date on October 31st was deemed necessary. So this is a final call for submissions.

The photos submitted should include the name of the deceased, years of service, element or force to which the departed belonged or regiment/unit.

Relatives or friends of a beloved Veteran may have the deceased Veterans' photo displayed on the "Virtual Wall of Honour and Remembrance."

Photos, either a high resolution digital image or a hard copy, may be sent to Dominion Command, 86 Aird Place, Ottawa, ON, K2L 0A1 (no originals please as they cannot be returned) or electronically to rememberingthem@legion.ca or aleurmemoire@legion.ca.
