Located at Remembrance Square, two life-sized bronze statues of soldiers in uniform and a bronze Caribou mounted on top of the cenotaph provide a visual representation of the sacrifices made by the armed forces. The Square also serves as a site for the annual Remembrance Day ceremony. The Remembrance Square project was led by the Forget-Me-Not Campaign.

Morgan MacDonald’s two soldiers represent two historical periods: a First World War soldier carrying a Lewis machine gun and a Canadian soldier from the Afghanistan War.

The Caribou created by MacDonald is life-sized, smaller than Basil Gotto’s Caribou installed in Bowring Park. A replica of MacDonald’s Caribou can be found at the front entrance to the Caribou Memorial Veterans Pavilion in St. John’s.
