This cenotaph is foundbeautiful parkette, at the main intersection in Hastings, beside the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 106. A beautifully engraved memorial featuring crossed rifles and swords, and ivy branches with maple leaves. As with so many of these small town memorials, the list of names of the dead from the First World War is much longer than any other war, reminding us of the sacrifice given by those who fought in such a terrible conflict.
