Plaques and Corps Emblems (RHC) Arnemuiden

These plaques hang in the town hall of Arnemuiden, where the Historical Museum is located. Arnemuiden received the first plaque as a gift from the Royal Highland Regiment of Canada Veterans Association in 2009 as a thank you for the care of their wounded during "The Battle of the Sloedam and the Scheldt".
The plaque lists the feats of arms of the army unit concerned, including three of these facts that took place on Walcheren at the time.

At the bottom of the plaque you can read this text:
