The USA seems to be the only country that has brought back to their homeland their Fallen unless the next of kin specifically refused the offer. Question Who owns the Remains of The Fallen from foreign lands All Commonwealth Fallen were buried in the land where they died. In Canada there was a change in policy in 1970 there was a change in policy and now new Fallen are returned. There have been some exceptions The Unknown for the Tomb in Ottawa was brought home and the only id was he was a Fallen from WW1 No authority in Canada has answered the question re ownership of the Remains no Referendum has been held ; so is there a shame existing now for over 120 years that Canadians have created and continued by successive Governments ?? over 100.000 of Canadian Fallen are buried in over 60 countries
