Our Boys: Mississauga’s Fallen Soldiers 1914-1918

Our Boys: Mississauga’s Fallen Soldiers 1914-1918

To commemorate the centennial of the outbreak of the First World War in 2014, Heritage Mississauga documented soldiers from historic Mississauga who served and fell during the war. These soldiers are remembered on Heritage Mississauga's Virtual War Memorial and presented in this exhibition, which is on display throughout the Region of Peel. This research is ongoing but to date they have recorded 96 known fallen soldiers, many of whom are honoured on local cenotaphs, memorials and honour rolls.

This fall, the Museums of Mississauga, the Peel Art Gallery Museum and Archives, the Museum and Archives Polish Armed Forces in Memory of Boleslaw Orlinski and Heritage Mississauga are teaming up to commemorate our local soldiers who served in the First World War with the exhibition Our Boys. Thank you to our partners and to Heritage Mississauga for graciously sharing their research for this exhibition and helping us remember the sacrifices made by local families during the First World War. We will remember them.
