Historic Sites of Manitoba: St. Philip’s Anglican Church and War Memorial (240 Taché Avenue, Winnipeg)

A monument beside St. Philip’s Anglican (Episcopal) Church at 240 Taché Avenue in St. Boniface was designed by local parishioner Leonard W. Meanwell (c1885-1950) and made of Tyndall stone by Arthur Waller. Unveiled beside the church at a ceremony on 31 October 1920, presided over by Military District No. 10 Commanding Officer Major-General H. D. B. Ketchen, it commemorates congregants who were killed during service in the First World War.
