I think a glaring omission from the Peace Park is that there is no mention of the injured. Although they did not die on the field of battle, nevertheless, many of them died years later,as a result of their injuries.A lot of them suffered terrible trauma and were insane, others never worked again, and although they received a miserly pension, they had to depend on their families to survive.
I am not taking away from the great work of the Peace Park Committee, they have done a marvellous job and deserve great credit.
