This impressive memorial was designed by Canadian sculptor Pierre Granche and unveiled by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II in 1994. The monument is located across from Buckingham Palace in The Green Park.

The Memorial pays tribute to the nearly one million Canadian and Newfoundland men and women who served in the United Kingdom during the First and Second World Wars. In particular, it honours the more than 100,000 brave Canadians and Newfoundlanders who paid the ultimate sacrifice for peace and freedom.

It is made of red granite from the Canadian Shield with inset bronze maple leaves arranged in a windswept pattern. The polished granite is set at an incline and a shimmer of water flowing over it creates the impression of maple leaves floating down a stream.
