Historic Sites of Manitoba: Law Society War Memorial (391 Broadway, Winnipeg)

Link to:
First World War | Second World War | Other | Sources

A tablet in honour of members of the Law Society of Manitoba who served during First World War was unveiled by the Governor General Sir Julian H. G. Byng of Vimy at a ceremony on 15 October 1923. In addition to listing all who served, it identifies those who were killed in action or who died of wounds. Weighing 1,025 pounds and having a surface area of 55 square feet, the tablet was designed by C. W. U. Chivers and was manufactured by the Architecural Bronze and Iron Works of Toronto. A similar tablet for the Second World War members of the Law Society was added after that war. Both are located in the Broadway Avenue entrance of the Law Courts Building.
