When the Garden of Memories, located across from 1 Canadian Air Division Headquarters in Winnipeg, was started in 1997, those who purchased stones were asked to provide details of the service of the person being commemorated.

Sincere gratitude to Norman Malayney for investing a tremendous amount of time and effort in transcribing information for 1247 of the stones located in the Garden.  The first draft of the information booklet is available here.
