Province Honours Those Awarded The Victoria Cross At The Service Of Remembrance

Released on November 7, 2018

Premier Scott Moe, dignitaries, veterans and members of the Saskatchewan public service gathered in the rotunda of the Legislative Building to mark 100 years since the end of the First World War.  The service pays tribute to all the men and women who gave their lives serving Canada in conflicts around the world and to those who continue to serve our country today.

“One hundred years ago, Saskatchewan men and women sacrificed their lives to fight for peace and freedom in the First World War,” Moe said.  “It is through remembrance that their stories of bravery live on through us.  As we mark a century of remembrance, may we never forget those who have fallen.”

As part of the centennial services, a Wall of Honour recognizing Saskatchewan’s 15 recipients of the Victoria Cross was displayed at the service.  One of the first Victoria Cross recipients, George Mullin, returned from the Great War and went on to become the Legislature’s Sergeant-at-Arms in 1934.

The Wall of Honour will move to the Cumberland Gallery and be on display from November 8 to December 2, before becoming a permanent display in Room 218 of the Legislative Building.

There is an online commemoration of those from Saskatchewan who lost their lives in war.  The Saskatchewan Virtual War Memorial features more than 11,000 war casualties and their stories.  Find out more by visiting www.svwm.ca.  The website, managed by the Saskatchewan War Memorial Committee, accompanies the physical war memorial located west of the Legislative Building.
