Updated Book of Remembrance on display at City Hall
A record of Saskatoon’s former residents who fell in military service during the Second World War and in the following years is on display at City Hall.
“We’re so pleased to have this volume and be able to have it where it can be seen by more people,” says City Archivist Jeff O’Brien. “It joins the First World War Book of Remembrance we already have at the archives and together they form such a vital community historical resource.”
As was the first book, the second volume is a gift to the City from the Military Institute of Saskatoon.
The book contains the names of 345 residents of Saskatoon who died during the Second World War, three killed in the Korean War, seven during peacetime operations and five during the War in Afghanistan.
The latest book was presented to City Council in 2018 and is now part of the permanent collection of the City of Saskatoon Archives.
The Book of Remembrance will be available for viewing until Friday, November 15, 2019.
