Historic Sites of Manitoba: McAuley War Memorial (McAuley, RM of Ellice-Archie)

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

This monument was erected in commemoration of soldiers from the McAuley area killed in the First World War and Second World War. Two additional plaques identify all those who served during the two World Wars. Adjacent to the memorial, near the municipal office, is a plaque commemorating the 100th anniversary of the Rural Municipality of Archie in 1983. Local war veterans are also commemorated by the McAuley Pioneers Monument elsewhere in McAuley.
