At the Going Down of The Sun


At the Going Down of the Sun: The Fallen of Aylmer and Malahide, 1939 to 1945
Written by James L. McCallum
Edited by the Aylmer-Malahide Museum & Archives

At the Going Down of the Sun aims to honour and biograph the soldiers of Aylmer and Malahide who lost their lives during WWII. It pays tribute to those listed on the Aylmer Cenotaph, those whose casualties were reported in the Aylmer Express, and those who died at the No. 14 Service Flying Training School in Aylmer.

This book was researched and written by James L. McCallum, who graciously gave his work to the Aylmer-Malahide Museum & Archives to profit from its publication.

James L. McCallum is a genealogist and historian with extensive family ties to Malahide Township. James is a member and past chair of the Elgin County Branch of the Elgin Genealogical Society, and sits on the Board of Directors of the Aylmer-Malahide Museum & Archives. At the Going Down of the Sun is his sixth book, and he plans to publish a seventh in 2024.

The Aylmer-Malahide Museum & Archives is a small nonprofit museum dedicated to the preservation and presentation of the history of Aylmer and Malahide.

This project was sponsored by the Aylmer Express, the Royal Canadian Legion Colonel Talbot Branch No. 81, the Springfield Swans, Rosemary Kennedy, and James L. McCallum.

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.Laurence Binyon
