Preserve our Memorials

Our memorials commemorate many of the people, places, and events that define C&E history and heritage.  This is a project to find our C&E memorials, world-wide, build an inventory, research their history, and fund repairs.  Its scope encompasses:

  • monuments, cairns, plaques (e.g. Wegner Point, Vimy Gate, Blandford);
  • memorial lakes, natural features, buildings (e.g. Flt Sgt Leiven, 17 Wing);
  • assist unit displays (equipment, restoring vehicles, artifacts); and
  • identify opportunities to create new memorials (e.g. Hill 70, Dieppe, The Netherlands).

This work also contributes to:
