Thedford

 
Location:  Lambton County     N 43 09.916     W -81 51.018
174 Main Street, next to the Anglican Church.

The fieldstone cairn lists the names of sixteen men who died in the World Wars, along with the names of some of the key battles of those wars.  A small statue of a soldier sits on top of the cairn, the sculpture almost appears to be made of plastic.  The memorial was erected by the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 278 of Thedford.
