The Monument
The monument is from H. McGratton and Sons, St. George, N. B. The stone was taken from their own quarries and cut at their big plant and is perhaps the largest monumental contract executed in this granite centre. The stock is clear of all blemishes and the workmanship is of the highest order. The monument is about 24 feet high and weighs 40 tons. The stone is light with black dies on which the inscriptions are placed.
The sub die has 8 raised-panels on which are cut the names of the fallen soldiers. The upper die has the inscription- "In honored memory of the men of
Carleton County who laid down their lives in the great war."
"Their name liveth forevermore."
On the second base in large raised letters is cut _1914
Carleton County, 1918.
A beautifully carved granite statue, of a typical Canadian soldier with an almost startling expression of determination crowns the whole monument.

**********

Communities across Canada remember those who paid the supreme sacrifice with an annual parade to their war cenotaph followed by a mid morning service, the laying of wreaths and later refreshments at the local Legion Hall.

The Royal Canadian Legion PoppyWoodstock War Memorial is situated on Main Street in the grounds of the Carleton County Courthouse, Woodstock, New Brunswick, Canada. The statue of a soldier standing at attention tops this twenty feet high monument.

 

 

 

The poppy is the symbol of Remembrance Day which commemorates the end of the First World War which occurred on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month and was originally called Armistice Day.

Replica poppies are sold by the Royal Canadian Legion to raise money for needy veterans. A two minute silence is often observed at 11:00am in Commonwealth countries throughout the world to remember the service and sacrifice of many fine young men.  The International Symbol of Remembrance
