Poppy Stories

The Legion is once again proud to present “Poppy Stories”, an initiative that allows Canadians to scan a lapel Poppy with their smartphone. With every scan, you’ll be introduced to a fallen soldier with a story to remember. The stories expand on where and how soldiers grew up in Canada, their family history, pre‑war careers, and even some of their passions. This year, we’ve added 50 new stories that focus on peacekeeping.

Visit on your smart phone starting October 27.
