Location: Elgin County N 42 39.852 W 81 12.894
In a park at the triangular intersection of George Street, Bridge Street and Carlow Road.
The tripod shaped memorial is fittingly found in a triangular shaped Veterans Park, across the road from the Royal Canadian Legion Last Post Branch 410. The memorial was established on September 27th, 1986.
The design consist of three legs, representing the three main branches of the military, holding a black granite stone with a sculpted flame no top. On the black stone are three engravings of the Army, Navy and Air Force. At the base of the tripod pedestal are more words engraved to honour those who served before us.
The memorial is quite attractive, and very handy to the Legion.
Black top stone:
ON THE SEA
IN THE AIR
"KNOW ALL YE WHO PASS BY,
THAT FOR YOUR TOMORROW, WE GAVE OUR TODAY
IN MEMORY OF ALL
WHO MADE THE SUPREME SACRIFICE
