Historic Sites of Manitoba: Newdale and District War Memorial (Newdale, RM of Harrison Park)

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

The Newdale and District war memorial in the Rural Municipality of Harrison Park was constructed between 1919 and 1920 in memory of the community’s sons killed in the First World War, Second World War, and Korean War. Unveiled by Lieutenant Governor Sir J. A. M. Aikins, the monument stands 18 feet high, with a base and die of grey granite, surmounted by a life-size statue of a soldier carved in white marble by Signor Nicolai Rombello of Italy. In 1946 a bronze plaque bearing the names of the fallen of both World Wars was placed on the face of the stone.
