4cmr.com is a place of remembrance to those who served with the 4th Canadian Mounted Rifles in the First World War.
Being a respectful and honouring point of focus for those having relatives or research subjects who served at any time with the 4th CMR, the website (best viewed using Google Chrome) has grown out of discovering that my great-grandfather's brother, Cpl. Frank Forsdike, served and died with the regiment. As such, I do invite you to click on About to read the amazing story behind the incredible events that eventually led to Frank's previously unclaimed medals being presented to his daughter, 92 years after Frank's loss.
Pivotal to this website is the In Memoriam page, where you will find a "Wall of Honour" to the memory of those who served with the regiment. Just as importantly, alongside the names of those soldiers are the names of relatives or researchers who now represent and stand alongside those men today. So, if you have a relative or research subject who served with the 4th CMR, please do let me honour their memory by allowing me to add their details to the 'In Memoriam' page.
It is my hope to provide some tangible link to the men, the places and the Memorials associated with the regiment. So, please, explore and enjoy the site, feel free to contribute, and do check the 'Latest News' panel at the bottom of this page and the News page for updates, as this website is most certainly a work-in-progress project.
Through this website let us come together and say that whilst they are gone, they are not forgotten. I feel very strongly about that.
With our common bond I do look forward to hearing from you soon, as together "We will remember them".
