The memorial arrived in Montreal early in 2011. Shorlty thereafter it was shipped to CFB Trenton and once the Canadian Forces (CF) had decided on its final location, the memorial was turned over to 8 Wing in Trenton. The Camp Mirage Memorial was placed by 8 Wing in the Air Force Museum in Trenton and it was officially dedicated in July 2011.
Trenton is a fitting location for this memorial as it was the main base in which many of CF and civilian presonnel assigned to the mission in SWA flew out from. On a more sombre note, the remains of the 158 Canadians who were killed in SWA returned to CFB Trenton where they were met by Government and CF Officials aas well as their families. Camp Mirage was also an Air Force base to with all of these factors in play, CFB Trenton was the best location in Canada in which to situate this important memorial.
Attached are some of my images of the Memorial as it was in Camp Mirage, its disassembly and its new location in Trenton. For anyone visiting the Trenton area, take time to investigate the Air Force Museum and you will be able to see first-hand the Camp Mirage Memorial.
