Geographical features to be named after Fallen Soldiers

About 7,000 Manitobans died in the First World War, but the province only has names for 1,092 of them in its archives. The known casualties from the First World War will be commemorated with their names on land features. The province is asking families to check to see whether a relative from the First World War is missing from the list – see link above. If so, families should notify the Lands Branch of MB Conservation so it can reconstruct its list. http://www.gov.mb.ca/conservation/lands_branch/geo_names/index.html

Publication available about war dead (WWII) already commemorated – “A Place of Honour” http://www.gov.mb.ca/conservation/lands_branch/geo_names/honour-e/index.html
