Remembrance Day archive stories

Here's a collection of Remembrance Day stories The Telegram and other TC Media papers published in years past. Included are images of some of the The Telegram Remembrance Day front pages. There are so many stories Telegram and other TC Media reporters, editors and photographers have published over the years of how war has affected the province and its people. From those who fell on battlefields, those who returned injured and scarred physically and mentally, those who were held in prisoner of war camps, to those who risked their lives to keep the supply lines going, to those who nursed injured soldiers back to health, and to those who worried and waited for word. From the First World WAr to the war in Afghanistan, on the sea, over land and in the air, so many Newfoundlanders and Labradorians have served and sacrificed for freedom and democracy. As we continue to publish other stories our staff uncover in honour of Remembrance Day, we offer this look at stories past to help us all keep in mind the importance of Remembrance Day.
