Once Well Beloved

Publisher: The Royal British Columbia Museum Release date: 2019-10-18

Description

Our well beloved dead who died that we might live.In the town of Merritt, in British Columbia's Nicola Valley, stands a granite cenotaph erected in memory of 44 men who died soldiering in the First World War. Those men came from a Nicola Valley that had been suddenly and dramatically settled just a decade before by the will of railway executives and the arrival of British colliers.Twelve of those soldiers are the subject of these pages-and through them, we meet the men, women and children of the Nicola Valley, the dead and their survivors: the people who built and were built by a Canadian community that was also distinctly British Columbian.
