Plaque The South Alberta Regiment of Canada

On the outside wall of the General Cemetery in Steenbergen a plaque has been placed as a thank you from the Canadians to the people of Steenbergen for their hospitality during the Second World War.

Text on the plaque:


The South Alberta Regiment (SAR) 29th CDN ARM'D RECCE
Reg't, part of the 4th CDN ARM'D DIV and the 10th CDN INF
BDE, takes this opportunity to salute the Mayor and the
citizens of Steenbergen for their bravery and warm
support both during and after WWII. Steenbergen was the
final battle of the North West prior to the Allies taking up
a defensive position along the Mass and Lower Rhine,
during the winter of 1944-45. Canadians will always cherish
the bond that exists with the people of Holland.
