Welcome to the Antigonish Cenotaph Project’s Second World War blog. Over the next several years, this blog will display profiles of Antigonish town and county’s fallen Second World War personnel, as we mark the 80th anniversary of the war’s events. We will also commemorate the loss of three local men during the Korean War.

In writing these stories, the Antigonish Cenotaph Project committee has endeavoured to connect each individual to the area’s families, as well as the communities in which they lived. This collection reflects the many dimensions of both conflicts—land, sea and air—and conveys their devastating impact on our town and county.

Use the navigation bar at the top of this page to access our blog posts, read about the blog’s authors, or get in touch with us.

You are also invited to visit our First World War blog, where you will find profiles of 97 Antigonish town and county soldiers who made the ultimate sacrifice in service to their country during the Great War.
