The National Military Cemetery at Beechwood features two sections. This older section is built around the Cross Of Sacrifice, a common feature in Commonwealth War Cemeteries. This first shot features the graves of two Canadian generals from the Second World War, Charles Foulkes and Henry Crerar. It is fitting that they are buried with the veterans who survived the wars. I decided to use my photos of the other section of the National Military Cemetery for my Remembrance Day post in November.
Beechwood features sections set aside for the graves of RCMP officers and support staff. I'll show you some of that in tomorrow's closing post.
Another prominent grave I found along the way is that of Ray Hnatyshyn, a well liked politician who later became Governor General.
There is a monument here created in honour of Elizabeth Bruyere, who I mentioned in my posts from Notre Dame Cemetery, as well as St. Marguerite d'Youville, the founder of her order.
The Ottawa Police Service has an area set aside for its members here too.
