The slogan of the Canadian Legion  is " LET PEACE BE THEIR MEMORIAL" . In remembering the service and sacrifice of our war veterans, we recognize the tradition of freedom they fought to preserve. These men and women had faith in the future and by their acts  gave us the will to preserve peace for all time. To all the sailors both naval and merchant who gave their lives to protect our freedom, we dedicate the Naval Prayer.


0 eternal Lord God, who alone spreadest out of
the heavens, and rulest the raging of the sea;
who has compassed the waters with bounds
until day and night come to an end; be pleased
to receive into thy almighty and most gracious
protection the persons of us thy servants and
the fleet in which we serve. Preserve us from
the dangers of the sea, and from the violence of
the enemy; that we may be a safeguard unto our
most gracious sovereign lady. Queen Elizabeth
and her dominions, and security for such as
pass on the seas upon their lawful occasion; that
the inhabitants of our commonwealth may in
peace and quietness serve thee our God; and
that we may return in safety to enjoy the
blessings of the land, with the fruits of our
labours, and with a thankful remembrance of
thy mercies to praise and glorify thy holy name;
through Jesus Christ our lord.
