"The Books of Remembrance contain the names of the men and women who died in service to Canada. There are seven books in total, which include names from the country's first expeditions until the most recent missions."

for Leo Joseph Martin Broderick
"Everyday at 11:00 a.m. a member of the House of Commons Security Services conducts the Turning of the Page ceremony. Since 1942, a page has been turned daily in the Books of Remembrance, which contain the names of Canada's war dead. The order of pages turned is based on a perpetual calendar system that ensures each name appears at least once yearly."
|Turning of the Page Ceremony|
I requested in writing to be present for when the page is turned on March 24th, 2015 to honour the brief life and ultimate sacrifice of my first cousin 2x removed Leo Joseph Martin Broderick (1919-1943).
