RR Legion historian, Marjorie Stinzi, placed beautifully hand knitted poppies around the howitzer at the Legion Cenotaph in memory of those lost in the Battle of Somme which began July 1, 1916. 7,000 commonwealth and French troops died on the first day. By the end of the conflict in November, about 420,000 had been killed.
