The Last Post Memorial
Through the long history of The Queen's Own Rifles of Canada, thousands
have given their lives in service to Canada. The Memorial pages are
listed by Action, starting with the Fenian Raids and ending with those who
died while in Peace Time service.
During World War I and II, the QOR lost
so many riflemen that those are further separated into alphabetical pages by
the first letter of their family name.
The Fenian Raids
The Boer War
World War I
World War II
The memorial pages were made possible by the work done by the
Regimental Padre, Capt Craig Cameron, CD. He spent a tremendous amount of
time organizing information gathered from veterans, by reading and by visiting
gravesites and memorials. His primary references are listed
