Website Will Document Huron County Soldiers Who Fought In World Wars

Huron County | by Fadi Didi  
"Heroes Of Huron County" looking for documents relating to world war soldiers.

A project is in the works to introduce remembrance to the digital age.

Members of the Dutch-Canadians Remember as One committee are assembling records of local soldiers killed in World War 1, with the hopes of compiling the documents online.

Committee member Patrick Nagle points to the declining number of Canadians with direct experience to the two World Wars as the reason the initiative is so important.

Members of the public with documents relating to the war are asked to bring them forward for online documentation.

Letters, military records, photos, and medals are among the items Nagle says he has received from Huron County residents.

Down the road, Nagle hopes to have QR codes posted at local cenotaphs, so residents wanting details on fallen soldiers can find the information instantly.

If you have documents relating to a Huron County serviceman or woman, you can find a link to contact the Heroes of Huron website here
