Postmedia has set up a twitter feed that posts the names of Canada's sailor, soldiers and air men and women who have made the ultimate sacrifice, every hour at eleven minutes after the hour.  Every November 11th, they take the name posted at 11:11 and try to develop the story of their life, crowdsourcing information.  Today, it's Gunner Metcalf, who died during the Battle of Arras.


You can email any biographical details to reporters Andrew Duffy at aduffy@postmedia.com and Shaamini Yogaretnam at syogaretnam@postmedia.com, or city editor Drake Fenton at dfenton@postmedia.com.

You can also tweet information directly to @citizenduffy, @shaaminiwhy or @drakfenton. We’ll be using the hashtag #wearethedead.
