This weekend they rededicated part of Brookside Cemetery - the Teardrop Section in the military Field of Honour.
Brookside, located just north of Red River College's Notre Dame Campus, is the largest and oldest military Field of Honour in Canada with 12,000 veterans buried there.
Brookside is home to some of famous Winnipeg servicemen
And the less famous
The Field of Honour is just one section in this vast municipal cemetery. The cemetery is also well signed to point out significant people or historic events related with them.
It’s a beautiful setting, rich with history. With Remembrance Day approaching, well worth a visit.
