The CEF Study Group’s latest listing of recommended great war websites has this to say:
“The Saskatchewan Virtual War Memorial – They gave all that we may live in peace and security
“This web site commemorates Saskatchewan’s war dead and supplements the physical War Memorial located on the grounds of the Saskatchewan Legislature in Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada. You can search the database of more than 11,000 war casualties using a sophisticated set of criteria. In addition, a unique set of combined statistics can be viewed including “Casualties by Cause of Death” and “Casualties by Lifespan After Enlistment”. In addition, there are features to share and upload information to expand upon the material. The website is very well done and serves as an example for others to emulate.” [CEF Study Group – Sept 2012]
Yay for us! And special congratulations to Ben Charron, the talented guru who built SVWM and continues to help me maintain it.
