Memorial for fallen Canadian soldiers returns home
The cenotaph has long been a sombre fixture at the airfield, located behind the two-storey Canadian headquarters and a few paces from the spot where tents for journalists once stood. In mid November a team of engineers started the process of dismantling the memorial and today it arrived back on Canadian soil.
Every name on every plaque had been safely removed and placed in wooden crates and the memorial is currently in storage in a undisclosed location in Ottawa.with plans to have it publicly displayed eventually in the Ottawa region.
I`ve posted a video from The Canadian Army news about the repatriation of the memorial back in November 2011.
