Location:  Elgin County     N 42 52.897   W 81 05.160
On the south side of Caesar Road, in the Belmont Community Park.

The memorial is fairly new by most standards.  It consists of a remembrance walkway with engraved stones dedicated to local heroes who have served in the Canadian Forces.  The pavement stones themselves tell a story of history and service.  At the head of the memorial is a stone with sentimental words and a flag painted onto it.  Behind the stone and on higher ground is a stylized poppy bounded by a maple leaf.  I found this to be a touching memorial for a small town, and good to see that even in modern times they still choose to remember.

Marker text:
This Cairn is dedicated
to the valiant Canadians
who have served and to those
presently serving in both
war and peace.
We Salute You
