Today I return to the National War Memorial with shots taken a few days ago on an overcast day. The Memorial occupies the heart of Confederation Square, surrounded by other landmarks. It was dedicated by King George VI in 1939, months before the outbreak of the Second World War. Meant to pay homage to the dead of the First World War, it has been rededicated since then to include World War Two, Korea, Afghanistan, the South African War, and Canadian military service in general.
This view from the southeast includes some of the summer flowers. There were groundskeepers around doing some routine maintenance around the back of the Memorial, hence the fencing you'll see in some of these shots.
