—Lest we forget / Nous nous souviendrons —

The Royal Canadian Air Force has stood on guard for Canada since 1924. Over three hundred and twenty five Sackville area residents and students of Mount Allison University have served in the R.C.A.F. both here and abroad from the First World War until today. Of those members of our Air Force, seventy four made the ultimate sacrifice by laying down their lives in the name of freedom and democracy. It is our responsibility to ensure that they are never forgotten and to honour all who have served in the past and will serve in the future.
The Avro "Anson" was widely used as an instructional aircraft in the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan during the Second World War, at Moncton and Chatham, NB for pilot, navigation, bombing, gunnery, and radio instruction. The example shown here was built in Amherst, NS just across the marsh from Sackville, and was one of nearly 3,000 built in Canada of more than 11,000 built worldwide. It remained in production from 1936 until 1952.

L'Aviation royale du Canada défend
le Canada depuis 1924. Plus de trois cent vingt-cinq résidant(e)s de la région de Sackville et étudiant(e)s de l'Université Mount Allison ont servi dans l'ARC à la fois ici et à l'étranger depuis la Première Guerre mondiale jusqu'à aujourd'hui. Parmi les membres de notre Armée de l'air, soixante-quatorze ont fait le sacrifice ultime en donnant leur vie au nom de la liberté et de la démocratie. Il est de notre responsabilité de veiller à ce qu'ils(elles) ne soient jamais oublié(e)s et d'honorer tous ceux et celles qui ont servi dans le passé et qui serviront à l'avenir.
L'Avro Anson a été grandement utilisé comme avion de formation dans le Programme d'entraînement aérien du Commonwealth britannique pendant la Seconde Guerre mondiale, à Moncton et à Chatham au Nouveau-Brunswick pour la formation des pilotes et pour la formation sur la navigation, les bombarements, l'artillerie et la radio. L'exemple montré ici a été construit à Amherst en Nouvelle-Écosse juste en face du marais de Sackville et était parmi près de 3000 construits au Canada et plus de 11000 construits dans le monde. Il est resté en production de 1936 jusqu'en 1952.
