Meet Some Gave All
It is the centenary of the First World War. One hundred years ago, Canada’s youth were dying in the trenches of France. ‘Some Gave All’ was inspired by the sacrifices that so many made during the Great War. ‘Some Gave All’ features two silhouettes of battlefield scenes, poppies, barbed wire, the Vimy Ridge Memorial, and the Red Ensign (the flag the Canadians fought under in World War One).
