Remembering the War Years

The Mirror is asking veterans or families of veterans to share their photos from and stories of their war years

To commemorate Remembrance Day this year, the Campbell River Mirror is asking veterans or families of veterans to share their photos from and stories of their war years – whatever conflict, past or more recent.

They may be portraits of veterans in uniform during their time of service or casual photos of comrades at arms, families, etc.

This is an opportunity to honour the men and women who made a contribution to or survived the war effort in whatever capacity you’d like to remember. This includes civilians and people on the home front.

E-mail your digital photos and a couple of explanatory paragraphs to editor@campbellrivermirror.com. Alternatively, you can bring your photos in to be scanned to the Mirror office at 104 – 250 Dogwood Street.

Please include a contact phone number.

We will publish a selection of submissions Nov. 9 in the Mirror and all of them at www.campbellrivermirror.com

For further information call Alistair Taylor at 250-287-9227 or e-mail editor@campbellrivermirror.com
