Found on the east side of Homestead Drive, behind the library.
A fairly recent addition to the world of war memorials, is this unique offering from the village of Mt. Hope. The main structure features 3 pillars, each with the modern day crest of the primary branches of the Canadian Armed Forces (Army, Air Force, Navy). Below, on the base, are the names of those lost in the World Wars, as well as the men who perished while training at the nearby flight school, at the Mt. Hope Airport, now home to the famous Warplane Heritage Museum.
