Belgian town honours Canadian soldier
A rose in Belgium was named in
September in honour of Private George Lawrence Price, the last Canadian and last Commonwealth soldier killed in battle during the First World War. Price died minutes before the end of the war near Le Roeulx, where the christening of the flower — a rose species developed in 2011 by a Belgian producer — took place. In November, the town unveiled a memorial park dedicated to Price and marked one hundred years since the end of the war.
