The Fallen


During the Great War 1914-1918, 1,467 officers and men died while serving  in the 15th Battalion and they are buried in 205 cemeteries in Europe and Canada. Those Fallen whose remains were never recovered are memorialized  on the Vimy Memorial and the Menin Gate.  The names of all the 15th Battalion’s casualties will be found in the Commonwealth War Graves Commission list below. Photographs of individual headstones for many of the 15th Battalion’s dead can be found in the headstone gallery which will continue to grow over time as Project  Team  members and supporters visit  cemeteries and photograph headstones. Similarly, the Photo gallery of the Fallen contains photographs of individuals which the Project Team has located to-date.

They shall grow not old
As we who are left grow old
Age shall not weary them
Nor the years condemn
At the going down of the sun
And in the morning
We will remember them
