Location: Wellington County N 43 58.127 W 080 58.762
West of the main intersection of Allan Street and Veterans Way, in Memorial Park.
This memorial was erected by the citizens of the village of Clifford and Howick Township, to pay tribute to the seven local men who were lost in the Great War. After the Second World War, two more names were added of those lost in that war.
This area is now known as the Town of Minto, following the 1999 amalgamation with Palmerston and Harriston, although each village maintains its own historic roots and memorials.
