The RCR Afghanistan Memorial
WHY ARE WE DOING THIS?
“The regiment, through the course of its service, has commissioned or received a number of memorials that commemorate significant events in the regiment’s history, and which honour the achievements, and sacrifices made by its members, especially those who have given their lives in the defence of Canada.” Regimental Standing Orders, 2017.
WHAT DO WE WANT?
The memorial should be suitable as a table centrepiece, be mounted on an appropriate base and be of museum quality equivalent to the existing memorials.
A committee chaired by MGen (ret’d) Denis Thompson will collect proposals from any member of the Regimental Family or Arts Community who may wish to contribute to this commemoration. Images, sketches, or any other illustrative work can be submitted for consideration by the committee by sending a digital document to firstname.lastname@example.org by 23 September 19.
A vote by the entire membership of the Regiment will be conducted to reduce the candidates up to three.
The Regimental Senate will approve the final design.
The memorial is scheduled to be unveiled in December 2020.
The memorial is expected to cost up to $100,000. Donations can be made online by clicking
Donations can also be made via cheque payable to The Royal Canadian Regiment Trust Fund.
