    Sikh Remembrance Service - Why Should We Remember?

    Military Heritage
    With a long military tradition Sikhs have always been at the forefront in serving their country. Over 65,000 Sikh soldiers fought in WWI as part of the British Army and over 300,000 Sikhs fought against German and Japanese tyranny in WWII.

    Past and Present

    We will honour the service of our men and women of the Canadian Forces as well as remember all those who have served and sacrificed for their country in past wars.

    Reclaiming a Forgotten Hero

    The ceremony takes place at a historic location of great significance. The grave site of Pvt. Buckam Singh, the only Military Grave of a WWI Sikh soldier in Canada. Wounded twice on the battlefields of France in WWI, Canadian soldier Pvt. Buckam Singh was one of only 9 Sikh soldiers allowed to serve with Canadian Forces in WWI. With the discovery of his war medal and military grave the Sikh community has reclaimed a forgotten son and Canada has reclaimed the story of a hero.
