CWGC on Canada's role in the world wars

Here, the Commonwealth War Graves Commission is taking a look back at Canada’s contributions in the First and Second World Wars, and the cemeteries and memorials where those lost in action are honoured.
July 1917 saw the death of 859 members of the Canadian and Newfoundland forces, 856 with the Army. two with the Royal Naval Canadian Volunteer Reserve, and one with the Newfoundland Royal Naval Reserve.
