In Flanders Fields
   

 

Sir William & Mrs. Stephenson

 

 

The Sir William Stephenson Branch was chartered on May 2, 1989, named to honour the war hero and master spy who was also known as the ‘Man Called Intrepid’.

 

The branch houses replicas of Sir William Stephenson's medals, which were generously donated, and a personal telegram granting permission to honour him in this way.

 

When at the Branch visit his Memorial Wall for more exciting displays.

SYMBOLS OF THE ROYAL CANADIAN LEGION

 

Royal Canadian Legion

The crown is the St. Edward Crown, used by the Sovereign.

 

The red maple leaf on the white background is derived from the Canadian coat of arms.

 

Our pledge and motto Memoriam Eorum Retinebimus (We Will Remember Them), is in the outside circle.  It is in Latin, a language generally used on badges, crests and banners of national and military emblems.

 

The word "Legion", in gold, and the background in blue represents the official colours of the Legion. The Poppy is the symbol of remembrance. 

 

This badge has been approved by the Sovereign.

 


 

The blood red poppy of Flanders is immortalized as an emblem of sacrifice and remembrance for the honouring of the thousands who laid down their lives for those ideals which we, as Canadians, cherish.  

 

The poppy calls upon us to remember not only those who have died, but those they left dependent, and those who still suffer from honourable wounds and disabilities.  The poppy challenges us to serve in peace, as in war, to help those who need our help, and to protect those who need our protection.

 


 

  The torch is symbolic of justice, honour and freedom for which our comrades fought and died.  

We who are left must pledge ourselves to hold it high, lest we break faith with those who died.
