This bronze plaque recognizes all Manitoba Power Commission (MPC) employees who served in the Second World War. The crosses by four names indicate they were killed in action. It was installed in MPC’s head office in downtown Winnipeg in 1947 and replaced a temporary honour roll that had been hanging since the war. The plaque was designed by Percy R. Marsh of Winnipeg and an image of the Manitoba Power Commission logo is at the top. The Honour Roll Committee consisted of Bob Coxe, Accounting Department; Doug Wade, Supply Department; and Parry Power, Personnel Officer.

Following the amalgamation of MPC with Manitoba Hydro in 1961, the plaque was installed at Manitoba Hydro’s head office at 820 Taylor Avenue. The plaque was removed in 2017 when Manitoba Hydro consolidated employees at its head office at 360 Portage Avenue. It was is in storage in that building until it was installed on November 7, 2022.
