What is the digital poppy campaign

The Digital Poppy serves as a symbol of Remembrance and gratitude for Veterans, and you can be a part of it.

Every year The Legion National Foundation organizes the Digital Poppy fundraising campaign. Together with the support of Canadians from coast to coast to coast, we honour the act of Remembrance and raise much-needed funds to positively impact the well-being and quality of life of Canada’s Veterans and their families.

The Poppy Design is a trademark of The Royal Canadian Legion (Dominion Command) and is used under license.

Sergeant Edward Thomas Short

From Eric Short

I would like to give special tribute to my Uncle, Sergeant Edward Thomas Short, who peacefully passed away on August 18, 2021. He was a loving husband, father, grandfather, brother and uncle. A very dedicated man to both his family and to his 35 year Military career. Ed enrolled on October 24th, 1961 at the age of 19 starting out as a Gunner in the Artillery at Gagetown Fredericton. He held various roles throughout his career in all three segments of the forces Army, Navy and Air Force. Aside from Ed’s strict Military side, he was a big kid at heart with a great sense of humor who loved to joke around and have fun, bringing cheer and laughter to all.

In loving memory of

William Robert Edward Glennie

From Pennie M Glennie

My grandfather, William Robert Edward Glennie was a British Home Child. At the tender age of 8, along with his three brothers and hundreds of other children, Bill was shipped to Canada as part of Dr. Barnardo’s “better lives” project. Almost 10 hard years later he lied about his age to join the Canadian Over-Seas Expeditionary Force as part of the Depot Regiment, Canadian Mounted Rifles. In the midst of WWI he returned to defend the kingdom that had abandoned him. In the end having been wounded in action he returned to is adoptive country. This is in memory of the industrious, creative, quiet and gentle man I knew and loved.
