All things remembrance

My neighbourhood names some of its streets after war veterans who were killed in action. They demarcate the act of remembrance by placing a red poppy in the left corner of the street sign. Naturally, this leads me to want to find out more about who "Small Court" is named after. I visited the Government of Canada's Library and Archives site. I usually start here: https://www.bac-lac.gc.ca/eng/discover/military-heritage/Pages/military-heritage.aspx


I found twenty-one results returned for surname "Small" from the WWII archives: https://www.bac-lac.gc.ca/eng/discover/military-heritage/second-world-war/second-world-war-dead-1939-1947/Pages/list.aspx?SurName=small&

I'll keep snooping and let you know when I find out more about the veteran named "Small." It's no small feat, this act of remembrance, but it's worth it. It's our solemn duty.
