During WWII a large wooden wall board was located on the Court House grounds at the corner of Queen & Elgin streets. The names of all those who volunteered for active duty were placed on the board by branch of service. When one of these people was killed in action a small maple leaf was painted beside their name.
The board was removed in 1954 having served its purpose and its condition was deteriorating.
The museum has established display boards in the Military Gallery to carry on this tradition.
