1. Canadian Pacific Railway Company World War I Memorial Marker
Inscription.

This tablet commemorates those in the service
of the Canadian Pacific Railway Company who
at the call of King and Country left all that
was dear to them, endured hardship, faced danger
and finally passed out of sight of men by the
path of duty and self sacrifice, giving up their
own lives that others might live in freedom.
Let those who come after see to it
that their names be not forgotten.
