The plaque reads: “The Saskatchewan War Brides Association – This plaque is dedicated to honour the war brides of WWI and WWII who married Canadian servicemen in a theatre of war and were brought to Canada by the Canadian government between 1945 and 1947. Approximately 48,000 brides and 22,000 children came from the British Isles and Western Europe to settle in every province of this great country. Many came to Saskatchewan adding to the rich mosaic of Canadian life on the prairies. Vos Salutams”
