HRM Monument #15: Canadian Peacetime Sailors Memorial (Bonaventure Anchor)

The anchor in the Canadian Peacetime Sailors Monument came from the HMCS Bonaventure, a Royal Canadian Navy aircraft carrier from 1957 to 1970 and Canada's last ever aircraft carrier. It was turned in to a monument in 1973, and dedicated by Rear Admiral Robert Timbrell, "To commemorate the personnel of the Armed Forces of Canada who lost their lives at sea in the performance of their duties and for whom there is no known grave." It is currently located in Point Pleasant Park.
