Edward Mortimer Macdonald (Minister of National Defence)

Liberal

Mr. MACDONALD (Pictou):

The situation is that this commission gather the bodies of the boys and locate them in a cemetery in the vicinity, as near as possible, to where they had fallen. I happened to be in Great Britain last year and visiled a number of the cemeteries, and I can assure the committee that the care of them by this commission is most efficient, and everyone in Canada can feel sure that the care of the dead has been regarded as a most sacred duty by them, and has been attended to in a most careful way. They collected them all in the various cemeteries, and decorated the graves with leaves and flowers.
