A Tribute to our Local Heroes: Honour Roll
Residents of Blackville and its surrounding communities have a very proud and rich history of rising to the call of service to their country.
During World War I and II, hundreds of men and women from our community entered the ranks of our Armed Forces to defend our great country. Their actions would secure our freedom and, in turn, set the course of history. They responded in very large numbers, leaving the comforts of home and family to serve in foreign lands facing untold dangers. Many were either killed in action or shed their blood in order to ensure our freedom.
We will remember them... always.
We took great effort to offer you a complete list of those servicemen and women who were killed in battle or passed away since demobilization. Please send additions and/or corrections to us using our contact form.
