Eganville

 

Location:  Renfrew County     N 45 32.241   W 77 06.060
At the corner of Pontiac Street and Wellington Street.
 

 
This memorial was erected by the Royal Canadian Legion Branch #353, and sits at the west end of their parking lot.   A 155mm Howitzer, built in Sorel, Quebec is the dominant feature of this fairly modern cenotaph.  The words "Let the guns be silent" are the largest and most prominent words on this memorial, no names are remembered, only the conflicts of the previous century.
