to remember the ones who did not grow old, to honour the ones who did
to you from failing hands we throw the torch;
be yours to hold it high
if ye break faith with us who die,
we shall not sleep
though poppies grow in Flanders Fields
----
Canadian soldiers who died:
First World War - 66,573
Second World War - 44,927
Korean War - 515
Peacekeeping Missions - 130
