Historic Sites of Manitoba: St. James Cenotaph (Bruce Park, Winnipeg)

The cenotaph was originally erected in 1936 in Bruce Park by St. James Royal Canadian Legion No. 4 to honour the fallen soldiers of the First World War. Frost damaged the original cenotaph in the 1980s and, in 1990, a replica was erected that included veterans from the three major world wars of the twentieth century. It was dedicated at a ceremony on 30 September 1990.
