Location: Peterborough County N 44 23.091 W 077 58.895
On the north side of town, west side of County Road 40 (Colborne Street).
This memorial was erected in Norwood-Asphodel Cemetery by the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 300 of Norwood. It is dedicated to all ex-service members resting in peace in all cemeteries.
One of the unique features I noticed in this cemetery, in addition to the beautiful Legion memorial, is that every grave of an ex-serviceman/woman had a custom made metal maple leaf with their names inscribed. A very nice touch which gives thanks to all those who served.
