Memorials

The oldest is the Ridgeway tablet in the Memorial United Church, Ridgeway, Ontario. Ridgeway is also commemorated in a stained glass window in University College, a tablet in the Provincial Parliament buildings, the Canadian Volunteers Monument in Queen’s Park (west side of Queen’s Park Crescent) and a cairn at Ridgeway.

  In a ceremony held on the parade square at Moss Park Armoury, plaques commemorating war dead from the Battle of Ridgeway, the Boer War and the Korean War were unveiled. Wreaths were laid and Lat Post and Reveille were sounded. The new plaques were placed on The Queen's Rifles of Canada's Memorial Wall, whihc already features plaques listing all killed in action or died of wounds in both World Wars.

  The new memorial plaque was placed and dedicated by The Queen's Own in honour and memory of 322 men of their regiment in the Third Toronto who were killed in action and marked the final step in a program to refurbish and/or install memorials to members of the regiment killed in 1866 at the Battle of Ridgeway, in 1900 in the South African (Boer War), the action at St. Julien in 1915 and in the Korean War in 1954-55.

  The North-West Rebellion, 1885, is remembered by the North-West Rebellion Monument in Queen’s Park (east side of Queen’s park Crescent), the Battleford Column tablet in Moss Park Armoury and a cairn at Battleford, Saskatchewan

 
The South African War occasioned the most graceful memorial of all. It is on University Avenue and there is also a tablet in Denison Armoury.

The First World War is commemorated by the Cross of Sacrifice and the Shrine containing the Book of Remembrance at our Regimental Church, St Paul’s Anglican Church. In addition, a tablet is mounted at Moss Park Armoury. The QOR fallen are also remembered in The Buffs Memorial window, Warrior’s Chapel, Canterbury Cathedral, Canterbury, Kent, England.

A plaque was erected to the fallen in the Second World War at the site of the D-Day landing, Bernieres-sur-Mer, Normandy, France. A tablet was also placed of a farm building at Mooshof, Germany, where Sergeant Aubrey Cosens, VC, won his decoration.

There are also significant memorials at Le Mesnil-Patry, Anguerny, Anisy (France) and Wons, Rha, Sneek, Doorn, Oostburg, Zutphen (Holland). Other lesser memorials also exist.

 


There exists a monument in memory of your brave Regiment in Giberville in the Calvados region.
