Do you know of any military memorials which are not yet contained in the records of National Inventory of Military Memorials? Do you know the story behind a Canadian military memorial? Information on all memorials, monuments, cairns, plaques, fountains and dedicated stained glass windows is welcome no matter what their condition. With your help, the Department of National Defence’s Directorate of History and Heritage (DHH) and the Organization of Military Museums of Canada (OMMC) hopes to continue the search for military memorials from across the country. http://www.cmp-cpm.forces.gc.ca/dhh-dhp/nic-inm/rm-em/index-eng.asp

Connaissez-vous l’histoire qui se cache derrière l’un de ces mèmoriaux militaires? Si oui, nous vous invitons à remplir la fiche d’information qui suit. Nous avons besoin de vos connaissances pour continuer à inscrire de nouveaux mémoriaux – ainsi que des renseignements sur leur emplacement et leur histoire – dans notre base de données. En répondant aux questions que contient cette fiche, vous contribuerez non seulement à célébrer le patrimoine militaire du Canada, mais également à nous aider à en assurer la préservation. Toute information sur ces m´moriaux – monuments, tumulus, plaques, fontaines ou vitraux – sera la bienvenue, quel que soit l’état de ces objets. Grâce à votre aide, la Direction – Histoire et patrimoine (DHP) du ministère de la Défense nationale et l’Organisation des musèes militaires du Canada (OMMC) espèrent pouvoir poursuivre leurs recherches sur les mèmoriaux militaires partout au Canada. Veuillez noter que les cimetières constituent un hommage important *à nos militaires dèfunts. Ils ont cependant été répertoriés par le Fonds du Souvenir et ne font donc pas partie de ce projet. Si vous avez des suggestions à faire au sujet de l’Inventaire national des mémoriaux militaires canadiens, veuillez imprimer le formulaire ci-dessous.
