Remembrance Day and the Home Front

Red poppies already adorn many a chest and collar on each side of the border as a lead up to Monday when the U.S. marks Veteran’s Day and Canada observes Remembrance Day. ¬† Both occasions mark and honor the difficult sacrifices made by our respective veterans in service to their country. ¬†These vintage wartime posters from World War I remind us that the reach and privations of the war that prompted the first Remembrance Day extended, as most wars do, to the home front as well.
