Armistice 1918 Ball Cap

$14.99

An annual day of commemoration for Canada’s war dead began after the First World War. With some 60,000 Canadians killed, the war produced a profound sense of loss in a country whose greatest military tragedy to date had been 267 dead in the South African War of 1899-1902. The huge cost of the so-called “Great War” was truly stunning for Canada, as it was for all combatant nations. As early as April 1919, Isaac Pedlow, Member of Parliament (MP) for South Renfrew, introduced a motion in the House of Commons to institute an annual “Armistice Day,” to be held on the second Monday of November. The term “armistice” denotes the cessation of hostilities in a conflict, and it was used universally for the final silencing of the guns that ended the First World War at 11 a.m. on November 11, 1918.

Description

This Ball Cap endeavours to remind us of this historic event, and its connection to our tradition of Remembrance Day. The design is similar to our former 100th anniversary Armistice Ball Cap, however, the year 1918 replaces the 100 which was previously displayed on the front. It is a good quality cap with exceptional raised embroidery and an easily adjustable headband to fit all sizes.
