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 centerpiece, 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 HERE
