‘In the end, it is the sacrifice and deeds of the soldier that dissolves tyranny and delivers freedom and dignity to those unable to fight for it themselves.’
The Original painting was unveiled by General Rick Hillier at the Official Launch at Mile One Centre, St. John’s, Newfoundland.
Very thoroughly researched for historical accuracy of events, gear, vehicles, and weapons.
*Newfoundland version of this print is the same as the Canada version, but with the WW1 soldier wearing Blue Puttees on his legs and Newfoundland Regiment patches on shoulder. Only Newfoundland soldiers wore these in the Great War. It also includes the modern Newfoundland flag alongside the Canadian flag and Canadian Forces Emblem on bottom left border of print (As seen in product images).
Newfoundland’s sons stood strong and fast and made a most memorable and monumental mark in the minds of allies, enemies and historians during WW1.
