Remember (part 2) ....

The names of Winnipeg's 1,619 WWI active duty deaths from November 11, 1935 Winnipeg Free Press.

They shall grow not old,
As we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them,
Nor the years condemn,
At the going down of the sun
And in the morning
We will remember them.
Laurence Binyon (1869-1
943)

That quote is actually painted on a mural downtown on...Garry? Garry I think. The mural is also of WWI theme.

Thanks - I'll have to check that out. Must be the one facing Graham Avenue ? I guess it was an often used phrase.
