HKVCA Commemorative Plaque


Click for larger viewThe Hong Kong Veterans Commemorative Association is pleased to offer this unique commemorative plaque for installation in publicly accessible venues.


The plaque (see thumbnail to the right) includes graphics that depict the Battle (Defence) of Hong Kong, and is intended to commemorate the 1,976 Canadians who fought against the Japanese Imperial Army during December 1941.

Please note that the concept of the plaque is not to recognize any one member of 'C' Force, but to commemorate all members. The design must not be altered in any manner without express permission of HKVCA.
