THEIR GLORY CANNOT FADE
This souvenir, illustrating the insignia
of the Canadian Army, is a simple
tribute to the Canadian Soldiers who
went overseas. Mere words are
altogether inadequate to express
Canadian appreciation of their
glorious  achievements.

In the dark days when the Hun hordes were overrunning Northern France, Vimy Ridge was held
by the Canadians. It was understood by them that
they would continue to hold it AT ALL COSTS. A FEW VITAL FACTS
G   □   □
*f When the war commenced Canada had a
permanent force of only 3,000 men, and an
active Militia of 60,000.
*f When hostilities ceased on Nov* 11, 1918,,
Canada had sent overseas 418,980 men.
5 Of the Royal Air Forces, some 14,000 or
15,000 were raised and trained in Canada* In
addition, many joined the R.A.F., after going
overseas in the Canadian Expeditionary Force.
5 That great distinction of valor, the Victoria
%sl was won by 43 Canadians.

and 1,657 the Military Cross.
3 6,500 others wear Military Medals, and 1,000
