Virtual Act of Remembrance 2021 – on YouTube (with subtitles)
48th Cap badge
Due to Covid-19, the 48th Highlanders of Canada conducted a small ceremony to enable our regiment to come together virtually and remember those who came before us.

After the gas attacks during the 2nd battle of Ypres, only 150 out of the 912 soldiers of the 48th Highlanders of Canada answered roll call in the morning.

Every year, we turn one page in our book of rememberance, displaying a new page of names of soldiers who gave the ultimate sacrifice.

“A man is not dead while his name is still spoken. We are only truly gone when we are gone from the memories of those who loved us.”
