Location: Kawartha Lakes N 44 40.780 W 79 05.788
In front of the cemetery, on Lake Dalrymple Road, north of Alvar Road.
The memorial is part of the gates to the Lake Dalrymple Cemetery. It was constructed in 1986, and pays tribute to the veterans buried in this small rural cemetery. An accompanying stone bench also pays honour to one of the local men buried in Mount Pleasant Cemetery in Toronto. Those responsible for the inscription also marked two names with "*", to indicate they were killed in action and buried overseas. So nice to see a small village remembering the sacrifice made by their veterans.
