The latest updates from The Brockville Rifles
At 1100 on 11 Nov 1918 Armistice was signed following the Canadian’s 100 Days Offensive. However, the war was not over for these soldiers. It would not be until the Spring of 1919 before they returned home. Those that did return home would suffer a lifetime of undiagnosed post-traumatic stress disorder known as Shell Shock. Today we honour their sacrifice. We Will Remember Them. Lest We Forget.
