Forgotten Heroes Memorial
       Bass River, NS
 
 
The Forgotten Heroes memorial in Bass River Nova Scotia , unveiled and dedicated on  July 1st, 2012, recognizes the part played by animals who served their country in war and peace.  What began as a school project for 11 year old Noah Tremblay, expanded into a concept for a memorial  that would eventually be located in Cobequid Veteran’s Memorial Park. Noah began raising funds in May 2011 and by 2012 had secured sufficient funds and donations to construct the memorial. The 15th Battalion Memorial Project and the 48th Highlanders of Canada were  proud to contribute to Noah’s  project in memory of LtCol CE Bent, Commanding Officer of the 15th Battalion C.E.F and the Battalion’s two mascots Bruno and Fritz whose names appear on the memorial.  Noah also selected a post WWI photograph of LtCol Bent, Bruno and Fritz on the Bent family farm in Paradise, NS for the cover of the programme for the dedication ceremony.
