First post on this blog.
It will contain mostly a quick summary of those who served their country during World War one, in the Port Coquitlam, Coquitlam, Port Moody, Essondale areas of the Lower Mainland of British Columbia.
It will also include numerous names not previously listed in the historical records of those who served, and also many corrections of spelling errors frequently found in the records.
Commenting is open to all, but is moderated; if you have anything to add to the information being presented please contact me, and I will update the information. This project started out looking at the folks who served from the Essondale Hospital / Colony Farm institutions, but it became quickly obvious that there was a lot of overlap between the neighbouring municipalities, and also that there was many people who had been missed.
The goal was to find photographs, pictures of the people who served, put a face to the name, sadly not very many were found. But the hope is that by placing the information online, eventually family or other researchers will point the way to some imaging, or more information about the people.
Lest WE Forget
