Two of Hamilton’s fallen soldiers will be immortalized at Peace Memorial Park.
The North Wall Riders Association will host a ceremony May 14 to unveil commemorative bricks in honour of Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders Corporals Nathan Cirillo and Justin Stark.
Association president Keven Ellis tells CHML News, they will be added to the nearly one hundred other commemorative bricks at the park on East 36th Street on the mountain.
The 24-year-old Cirillo was killed October 22, 2014 when he was shot from behind by a gunman while standing guard at the National War Memorial in Ottawa.
The 22-year-old Stark took his own life at the James Street Armouries in October 2011.
Stark’s mother later received a cheque for one cent from Canada’s Defence Ministry.
The ceremony on May 14 will begin at 10:30 a.m.
