World War One ~ WW1 ~ The Great War (1914-1918) In this thread I'm going to be posting something new: Circumstances of Death for Canadian WW1 soldiers. The images are War index cards that record the death of any Canadian soldier who died during WW1, often containing vivid details that led to their death. The details typed onto each deceased or missing soldier's card opens up a whole new world of what these young men went through and the many ways that any of they may have died. World War One ~ 1914-1918. Set 1. 1. Canadian/British soldier on guard while others rest. 2a. 2b. 3. 4.
