‘For King and Country’: A Project to Transcribe the War Memorials in Toronto Schools

Posted by admin on Nov 26, 2010

Many Toronto schools display lists of students, former students, and teachers who volunteered for active service during World War I (1914–1918) and World War II (1939–1945). A much smaller number of memorials exist for other conflicts. Some lists name only those who died, but most include all who enlisted.

While other records exist to document the military service of these volunteers, school memorials connect these young men and women to community, and show us the impact of war on that community.
