Relive a moment in time. Relive the original dedication and unveiling of the monument to Major Edward C. Norsworthy of the Black Watch Royal Highland Regiment of Canada, 100 years to the day. Presented by the Ingersoll Museum in cooperation with the two Masonic lodges in Ingersoll, this event is part of the Oxford Remembers Oxford’s Own Project to honour the men and women of Oxford County who served in the First World War and to commemorate the centennial of the Great War with 100 events between 2014 and 2018.
Major Norsworthy was second in command of the 13th Battalion of the Royal Highland Regiment of Canada during the Second Battle of Ypres and was killed in action on April 22, 1915. In 1918 his fellow Masonic brethren in Montreal coordinated the construction and dedication of this huge memorial in his home town of Ingersoll.
