Please join your neighbours and the King’s Own Calgary Regiment on Friday, November 11, 2016 for our fifth annual Remembrance Day ceremony at Battalion Park. Battalion Park, originally named Camp Sarcee in 1915, commemorates the soldiers who trained here for the trench warfare of World War I. Members of the Calgary, Lethbridge, Central Alberta and Edmonton battalions hauled over 16,000 stones onto the hill to form the numbers 137, 113, 151 and 51, representing the regimental numbers of their battalions. In 1991, after members of the 137 Battalion lobbied to have the stones declared a historic site, Battalion Park was opened.
 
We worked with the Parks Foundation, Signal Hill Community Association, and City administration to declare Battalion Park a designated Municipal Historic Resource on July 27, 2015. For last year’s 100th Anniversary ceremony, I supported our application for a Federal Historic Designation of this site, and we hope to honour this designation during Canada’s sesquicentennial with you next year. We hope you can join your community in a moment of silence to reflect on the sacrifices made by these brave Canadians.
