I should like to speak about war graves and to associate myself with the remarks of the hon. member for Nanaimo, that the remains of boys killed in Korea be brought back to Canada. I realize that the circumstances in connection with the burial of boys killed in France and Belgium in the first and second great wars are very different from the circumstances in connection with the boys killed in Korea. Korea is a country which will not be and has not been visited by many Canadians, nor do I expect it will be after the war is over. A boy named Leslie Field, from my own town, was killed there, and also another boy. Those are the only
two from my part of Canada. We hope there will not be a large number of our boys killed over there.
In view of the fact that Korea is a dismal, bleak and entirely foreign country, I believe we would be wise to do as the Americans are doing, namely, to bring the remains of our boys home so that they may be buried in graves in Canada and monuments may be erected to their honour. I would certainly like to see this done, and I recommend it to the minister's department.
