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:
- ‘Graves of the Fallen’ to photograph and research C&E graves, led by Joe Costello http://www.rcsigs.ca/index.php/Graves_of_our_Fallen_Project
- C&E / RCCS Honour Roll to assist C&E Branch and RCCS offices in recognizing our heroes http://www.rcsigs.ca/index.php/Honour_Roll
This is the index of the C&E Memorials Registry, click on any entry to see its details http://www.rcsigs.ca/index.php/CandE_Memorials
