Roll of Honour

St. Mary's Roll of Honour Lilac, SK

Armistice Day was first held in 1919, one year after the end of the First World War. In 1931, the day set aside to honour Canada’s war dead was renamed Remembrance Day. It is held annually on November 11, the day on which the First World War ended in 1918.

The WDM collection contains several honour rolls from Saskatchewan communities. This one hangs in St. Mary’s Anglican Church at the North Battleford WDM. It honours 19 men from the Lilac area, southeast of North Battleford, who served during the First World War.

Teachers: Saskatchewan Wartime Contributions Hands-On Discovery Box program

Students will learn about Saskatchewan's participation in the world wars, our contributions, and about life on the home front. The in-museum Discovery Box program focuses on the home front and the effects of war on the people of Saskatchewan. In-classroom lesson plans discuss how young people helped war efforts and the experience of Aboriginal people during and after the First World War.
