Commemorating the centenary of the First World War in books

Monday Monuments and Memorials – Cenotaph, Pakenham, ON

Leave a comment

Spring tulips and apple blossoms frame the cenotaph in Pakenham, Ontario at this time of year. The Celtic cross design would have been symbolic to the many Irish settlers in the area. The Pakenham Horticultural Society maintains seasonal plantings here and around the village. The cenotaph is in the Community Horticultural Park on County Road 29.

This is the Victoria Day holiday in Canada. A good time to reflect on those awarded the Victoria Cross for valour in the face of the enemy.
