Memorial

The Victoria Cross Memorial Gallery is dedicated not only to these two men who received the Victoria Cross while in service to their country, but also to the memory of those who served in all aspects of Canadian Military Maritime Aviation. The gallery is currently under renovation and will include portraits of each man, artwork depicting their act of heroism and any other pertinent displays that are contained within our collection.
