Mrs. C.S. Woods of Winnipeg lost five sons (of 12 who served) during the war and represented all Silver Cross Mothers (those who had lost sons and daughters to the war effort) at the unveiling of the Vimy Memorial on 26 July 1936. Mrs. Woods was singled
out by the King for a personal conversation after the ceremony; she prayed that there would never be another war. She passed away one month after the declaration of the Second World War.
