image of Lorne Scots Memorial, 2016

​This monument was erected to commemorate the 150th Anniversary of the Lorne Scots (Peel, Dufferin and Halton Regiment) and to honour those of the Regiment who made the ultimate sacrifice. It’s primary design feature is two square columns located at the rear portion of the base that rise to the height of 7 1/2 ft. Between the two columns is a space meant to represent a 3rd column that signifies Sacrifice and is representative of those Veterans of this Regiment who are no longer with us. It was unveiled by HRH Field Marshal Price Edward, Duke of Kent KG, GCMG, GCVO, CD, ADC, in September 2016. It is made of Canadian granite meant to match that of the Cenotaph across the street on Memorial Square.

This project was a joint effort between the City of Brampton, Town of Oakville and Town of Halton Hills as all three municipalities have the exact same monument.
