This mural recognizes and perpetuates the Act of Rememberance for all of our Veterans. It is a transitional collage of images that recognizes the different theatres of war. The choice of sepia colour tones was to give the feel of time. The three central images represent each branch of the Armed Forces and these three individuals are former residents of Morden.
