  1. A thoughtful memorium. It would be interesting to know the names of all the WW1 veterans of Antigonish County that survived the “Great War.”

    1. Thanks for the positive feedback, John. Unfortunately, compiling a complete list of First World War soldiers from Antigonish County poses several challenges. Shortly after the war, the Diocese of Antigonish compiled a list of soldiers by parish, but the list includes only Roman Catholic soldiers. While some churches and rural schools compiled “honour rolls,” assembling all of this information into one list is a daunting task, and not all communities created such documents.
