National War Memorial, Ottawa

Next to the Rideau Canal on Wellington Street you find the National War Memorial of Canada for all soldiers who lost their lives during the First and Second World War. Two military guards stand watch by the tomb of the Unknown Soldier and are replaced each hour with a ceremony. Also all fallen Canadian soldiers on the battlefields of Passchendale in Belgium, are remembered and respected for their offers by this memorial.

Naast het Rideau kanaal aan Wellington Street vind je de "National War Memorial" van Canada voor alle soldaten die gesneuveld zijn in Wereldoorlog I en II. Twee militairen houden de wacht bij het graf van de Onbekende Soldaat en worden ieder uur ceremonieel vervangen. Ook alle gesneuvelde Canadese soldaten van de Passchendaalse slagvelden in Belgie, worden hier gerespecteerd en herdacht voor hun offers.
