William Alexander Palmer
|During the Remembrance Day
ceremonies in 2008, Veteran's Affairs Canada conducted a vigil each night for the week
leading up to November 11. This vigil consisted of projecting the names of every
Canadian soldier who is listed with the Commonwealth War Graves Commission on various
buildings and monuments across Canada, and in London England. The photo below shows
William Palmer's name being projected on the outside wall of Canada House in London
For the 7
nights leading up to November 11, 2010, the names of all Canadian soldiers were projected
onto the Belgian War Memorial in Ypres. At
the same time, the same names were being broadcast via the internet to schools across
Belgium and Canada. The image above shows
the opening ceremonies at the Belgian War Memorial on November 4, 2010.
Below on the left is the name of William Palmer being projected on that wall. Below right shows the name being broadcast to the schools. Each name appeared for 25 seconds and each night 9,700 names were shown.
