The Sandwick Cairn was unveiled in 1922 and is dedicated to the memory of soldiers from the Comox region who served and died during the First World War, and later, the Second World War and Korea. It was constructed with stones brought from the farms of the families who lost loved ones.

On 1 November 2019, a memorial plaque, pictured here, will be added to the cairn. It will be dedicated to three men from the Comox Valley who made the ultimate sacrifice while serving their nation in more recent times. MCpl Mark Isfeld was a Field Engineer serving with 1 Combat Engineer Regiment in Croatia at the time of his death. The plaque will be mounted in time for this year’s Remembrance Day ceremonies.

The Comox Chapter donated $200 towards the creation of the plaque.
