In commemoration of our fallen during the Second World War.
We often feel disconnected with events that we did not experience but this memorial has given a link to what was previously simply a history lesson to me. Reading the names and realizing how many more are still missing – my history lesson has just been made real to me.
I had wondered why a few had a gold colored embossed mark at the beginning of their name, it turns out the mark indicated that his body had been found. It was then that I realized that most of those whose names were on the wall are still missing…
We stand proud and honor our heroes.
