Update Memorial Afghanistan Repatriation Memorial


The Afghanistan Repatriation Memorial was paid for by donations through the Give to Honour Those Who Gave campaign and unveiled on November 10, 2012. It features two large granite maple leaves. The red maple leaf is inscribed with the Canadian Forces emblem and provincial shields. The black maple leaf is inscribed with the names of the 158 soldiers who have died in Afghanistan. A granite silhouette of a soldier stands in front. The maple leaves are flanked by two Canadian flags and two granite benches.

It was created by Campbell Monument Company and the granite pieces were made from Indian Red and Jet Black which were quarried and shaped in India.

The memorial is close to 8 Wing/CFB Trenton where repatriation ceremonies were held for those who died on the mission and its location marks the beginning of the Highway of Heroes – the path that extends from Quinte West to Toronto.
