An Afternoon of Remembrance

Fort Rodd Hill and Fisgard Lighthouse NHS | 603 Fort Rodd Hill Victoria
Free
Come remember family and friends who went overseas to fight in the First and Second World Wars. Learn about Canada’s military past, the industries that supported it, and the essential roles of men and women on the homefront. Enjoy an autumn stroll, hear stories from local re-enactors, share your own stories and warm-up with a cup of hot beverage. Since the end of World War I and the Armistice declared at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, 1918, Canadians gather to remember the sacrifices made by ordinary men and women in the field of battle. They were our grand-parents, our parents, our sons and daughters, our neighbours, and our friends. Many soldiers who fought over the past decades were from Victoria. From 1878 to 1956, many of them worked and trained at Fort Rodd Hill and Fisgard Lighthouse National Historic Site. Many went off to fight during the Great War and World War II. Some returned, some didn’t.
