Memorial cartoon to Canadian Soldier killed in Canada

A Canadian cartoonist has created the perfect tribute to Nathan Cirillo, the soldier shot dead while guarding Ottawa's National War Memorial on Wednesday morning.

The very moving image was produced for Halifax's The Chronicle Herald by cartoonist Bruce MacKinnon.

It shows the bronze figures of the memorial, representing those who fought and died in the First World War, stooping down to pick up the body of the corporal and welcome him into their number.

It was among the many tributes that have poured in for 24-year-old Corporal Cirillo, who was a part-time reservist serving with the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders of Canada regiment
