IN TIMES OF WAR

Slide 24:

This scene was played out in thousands of train stations as men prepared to go to war.

Slide 25:

Many men would never return home.

Slide 26:

Many of the men were badly wounded.

Slide 27:

Soldiers were not the only casualties of war. Over one million children under the age of sixteen died during the Second World War. A brave young girl named Anne Frank was only one of them.

Slide 28:

During the Second World War, thousands of children were evacuated from Europe. Many of these children would never see their parents again. Some of these children came to Canada and went home only after the war was over.

Slide 29:

Women played an important role during times of war by working in the factories and doing many of the jobs usually done by men.

Slide 30:

Men often had to march hundreds of miles to reach the battlefield.

Slide 31:

The sound of the roaring guns often left men deaf for days.

Slide 32:

It was not unusual for men to go without sleep for days on end.

Slide 33:

During much of the First World War the men had to fight in trenches such as these at Flanders. The trenches were often filled with water and rats. The men were seldom dry or comfortable.

Slide 34:

Many small towns and villages, such as this one in France, were destroyed during the fighting.

Slide 35:

The young girls shown in this picture are asking the soldier to take their dolls thinking that he can keep them safe until the war is over.

Slide 36:

Many battles were fought in the air.

Slide 38:

Many battles took place at sea.

Slide 39:

Many brave men were lost.

Slide 40:

Soldiers were often transported to battles by large ships. The soldiers were then transported to shore by landing craft such as these.

Slide 41:

This picture shows people celebrating the end of the First World War. Armistice was declared at 11:00 a.m on November 11, 1918. The eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month is when Canadians everywhere pause to remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice so that we could live in peace.

Slide 42:

War memorials are a common sight across Canada and are one way that we honour those men and women who made the supreme sacrifice so that we might live in peace.

Slide 43:

The Books of Remembrance in the Hall of Honour in Ottawa are filled with the names of Canadians who gave their lives during times of war.

Slide 44:

On Remembrance Day we wear poppies to help us remember the horrors of war and the many brave people who lost their lives as a result.

Slide 45:

REMEMBRANCE DAY SERVICES ARE ANOTHER WAY THAT WE PAY TRIBUTE TO THOSE WHO FOUGHT FOR US.

Slide 46:

DURING THE ONE MINUTE OF SILENCE YOU ARE ASKED TO STAND AND BOW YOUR HEAD. REMEMBER THAT IT IS ONLY BECAUSE OF THE SACRIFICE OF SO MANY THAT WE ARE ABLE TO LIVE IN FREEDOM AND PEACE TODAY. ONE MINUTE OF SILENCE
