Students are back in class for another year… and we can’t think of a better time to announce that Toronto Branch has just reached a milestone in its project to index war memorials in the city’s schools!
The number of schools in our For King and Country database now stands at 100.
The latest additions are The Bishop Strachan School, Davisville Public School, Eastern High School of Commerce, George Syme School, Humbercrest Public School, Keele Street School (which just happens to be celebrating 100 years this month), Maurice Cody School, Roselands Public School, Victoria College, and York Memorial Collegiate Institute.
That’s 10 more schools… and 3,378 more names of students, former students and teachers who volunteered for active service in the World Wars and other conflicts. Our database now contains a total of more than 38,000 names, along with descriptions and transcriptions of memorials, photos and school histories, all fully searchable on-line.
