I looked in vain for a picture of one soldier going to war, but, was unsuccessful.  I, however, came across this picture of many many soldiers going to the First World War.  They were Canadian soldiers departing from Saint John, New Brunswick, Canada.  What brave men and women!!!





When I look at all these soldiers, I wonder how many actually made it back to Canada?

Sail on over to  www.sepiasaturday.blogspot.com  for more pictures and stories of the Great War.

  1. Great photo! War is a sad turn of events, for so many families, that is for sure.

  2. Doug Peabody's post gives some information about Canadian losses - around 14% did not come back (based on his figures)

  3. What a crowded ship and yes you can only wonder how many of them made the return journey safely back to their families.

  4. As I've been visiting my fellow Sepians today, I've been thinking how the Great War really was a WORLD war -- Australia, England, the US, and now Canada.

  5. This is the sort of picture that brings home to us the numbers involved. You are quite right to point out to us that many of those pictures would not survive.
