Thanks for showing this plaque...a wonderful tribute. Veteran's Day is Nov. 11th so this is a fitting tribute for those who served and gave up their lives.

The Second World War brought together many democracies to defend against the Facist powers. Thanks for showing this unique piece of history.

As a US citizen, it warms me to realize that those who lost their lives far from home are still remembered there.
