    Hi John, welcome to the forum. I have visted the memorial several times as my daughter lives nearby and have shown a few pictures of it on the forum in the past.

    It is nice to hear there are plans to upgrade it.

    Good luck on the project.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Hi John,

    Many thanks for your post and welcome to the forum! Thanks also for posting the photo Ade.

    Posted below is a photograph of the Katyn commemorative plaque in the Saint Casimir’s Polish Parish (Parafia św. Kazimierza) here in Vancouver.

    Visible in the picture is a small brass storage compartment at base of the plaque marked “Ziemia z Katynia” containing soil from the Katyn forest massacre site.

    Regards,
    Tony
