Commemorates the 100th anniversary of the declaration of the First World War
On October 3, 1914, the largest single movement of Canadians during the First World War—the largest convoy ever to cross the Atlantic to that point—set sail. Canada's response to Britain's declaration of war had been swift and enthusiastic, with recruits quickly swelling the nation's standing army of 3,110 to more than 30,000.

Tens of thousands of fathers, sons, husbands and brothers made their way up roped gangways to steel ships that would take them, along with 7,000 horses and critical munitions and supplies, to England.

Trains also played an essential role in Canada's mobilisation as they brought soldiers across the continent to the new training camp in Valcartier near the city of Québec, or delivered them to the Port of Halifax, where they would head out to sea. Over the course of the war, more than 650,000 men made that voyage. Sadly, more than 66,000 never returned home.

A touching commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the declaration of the First World War.
