The Taber Branch of the Royal Canadian Legion (GWVA) was organized shortly after WW1, on April 10th, 1919. In 1920 the members decided to erect a monument to honour the 25 men who did not return from the war
The Monument is entirely the work of the veterans except the statue.
A local veteran Thomas Love posed for the picture, the photographs were then sent to Italy, where Master Sculptors completed what is said to be one of the most perfect replica of a Canadian Soldier.
The Memorial stands in the Municipal Park close to the center of town, and was unveiled on July 11, 1928. It has since been formally presented to the Town of Taber, and they are responsible for the upkeep of the site.
All of the branches November 11th ceremonies take place at the cenotaph.
To the Glorious memory of the men of Taber District who died in the Great War 1914-1918
