In Remembrance: Private Buckam Singh


On Sunday November 7, 2010, members of southern Ontario's Sikh community attended a Remembrance Day ceremony at the grave site of Private Buckam Singh at Kitchener Mount Hope Cemetery - the only known military grave for a Sikh-Canadian soldier from both world wars.

He said Sikhs have a long military history as part of the British army during both wars, “but we never knew that we also had a part of Canada’s military heritage.”
