The Gun(s) of Jubilee Terrace Park, Brantford, Ontario, Canada

After the First World War, 1914-1918, The City of Brantford received as war trophies one German Heavy Howitzer and one 7.7 cm Field Gun, which were given to this community by the Canadian Government for the part we played during the Great War.

Since June of 1920, both of these guns kept silent vigil in Jubilee Terrace Park, except for a brief period in 1980 when they were removed and sent to the city yards on Earl Street for some much needed restoration work.
