war and its impact, UBC will hold its annual Remembrance Day
Services on Nov. 11.
Services begin at 10:45 a.m. in the foyer of the War Memorial
Gym. All members of the community are invited to attend the
memorial, which commemorates the sacrifices of Canadians who
have participated in wars over the last century.

community are expected to attend the services, held at the
campus landmark built as a memorial to British Columbias
During the First World War, 697 UBC students saw active military
service - 78 were killed. In the Second World War, 1,680 students
enlisted - 169 lost their lives.
