A project of Veterans Affairs Canada, there are seven Books of Remembrance that commemorate the lives of more than 118,000 Canadians who, since Confederation, made the ultimate sacrifice.
The Newfoundland Book of Remembrance commemorates the men and women of Newfoundland who served and gave their lives during both the First and Second World Wars before Newfoundland became a province of Canada in 1949.
The 2,300 names listed are from all three branches of the military: the navy, air force and army. The book includes memorials to First World War campaigns, including Gallipoli and Beaumont-Hamel, and Second World War campaigns, including North Africa and Italy, and Northwest Europe.
Each day, a page is turned in the Book of Remembrance at Grenfell Campus. The book is displayed along with the retired colours of the Second Battalion, Royal Newfoundland Regiment, in the atrium of the Forest Centre.
