The Last Post Memorial

Through the long history of The Queen's Own Rifles of Canada, thousands have given their lives in service to Canada.  The Memorial pages are listed by Action, starting with the Fenian Raids and ending with those who died while in Peace Time service.

During World War I and II, the QOR lost so many riflemen that those are further separated into alphabetical pages by the first letter of their family name.

The Fenian Raids

The Boer War

World War I

World War II

Korea

Peace Time

The memorial pages were made possible by the work done by the Regimental Padre, Capt Craig Cameron, CD.  He spent a tremendous amount of time organizing information gathered from veterans, by reading and by visiting gravesites and memorials.  His primary references are listed below.  

If you have information that you would like added to the pages, or to the database that is behind the pages, please send that information by e-mail to
