The grave of Nigel, Robertson Miller WW1

From Maureen Materi 23 April 04
A man from Belgium generously offered to put a picture of Nigel Roberton Miller on his headstone in the Lijssenthoek Military Cemetery, Poperinge, West-Vlaanderen, Belgium.  V. D. 28. Nigel  died, Thursday, 6th. April 1916, when he was in the Canadian Infantry (Central Ontario Regiment) 19th. Bn. The picture was taken when he was in Wick, and believe this is when he fought for the British Forces in the Boer War. 

"When I saw that picture and the Canadian flag on Nigel Miller's grave, my eyes started leaking.  Without them going to war, we would not be living the life we are today.  We owe them, and millions of others for the freedom we are so privileged to live today.  God Bless them all!"
