First World War | Second World War | Other | Sources

A metal plaque on an exterior wall of the community hall in Harding, in the Rural Municipality of Wallace-Woodworth, was erected by workers of the Harding Red Cross to list all local veterans of the First World War, including those who served and were killed. It had been removed for building renovations at the time of a visit in May 2013.
