NileGuide Expert tip:
The names of the more than 1,000 men and women who lost their lives are written in the Books of Remembrance in the Memorial Chamber in the Peace Tower at Parliament Hill, a few blocks away.
- Fresh flowers often grace the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, an unnamed Canadian victim of the First World War. Towering above are 22 figures frozen in bronze as they rush forward into battle. Nurses, pilots, soldiers and sailors all represent tales of self-sacrifice and courage made in the First World War, the Second World War and the Korean War. Though prominently located in the busy downtown core, this triangle of space becomes the center of attention every November 11 at 11am, when the country marks Remembrance Day in honor of the men and women who paid the ultimate price for freedom.
