Some Of The Memorials In Southwest Ontario

Memorials to the war dead come in all shapes and sizes. Some are old - some new. Cities, towns, and villages who do not have them are few and far between. Here are just a few (out of hundreds - remarkable for a country that prides itself on being unmilitaristic.) with what little information that I have on them.

Erected and dedicated 25 November 1928

Essex County

Essex County War Memorial constructed in 1924.

Ingersoll

Ingersoll Honour Roll erected in 1999.
