The Books of Remembrance contain the names of Canadians who fought in wars and died either during or after them. The books are kept in the Memorial Chamber located in the Peace Tower on Parliament Hill.
Every evening since 1928, at precisely 8:00, the Last Post, the traditional salute to the fallen warrior, has been played in Ieper, Belgium. This daily tribute honours the memory of the soldiers of the British Empire who fought and died in the Ypres Salient of WWI.
Every year, many people visit the Memorial Chamber to pay their respects to those who have sacrificed their lives for freedom and for our country. Take a virtual tour through the chamber to experience every detail, from the paving stones, to the stained glass and the Books of Remembrance.
