OttawaStart received this note from Paul Tierney in the United Kingdom:
Hi my name is Paul Tierney and I am looking for a photograph of the Mackenzie-Papineau Brigade Memorial showing my uncle’s name Frank Tierney. My Dad lives in England too and would welcome a photo of his brother’s name on the memorial. Can anyone help please? Very many thanks
If any of our readers live near the memorial at Rideau Falls Park, would you mind finding Mr. Tierney’s name and snapping a photo? You can email it to firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll send it along to Paul.
UPDATE (July 29):
Big thanks to Ottawa photographer Steph Willems for snapping these photos. We’ve shared them with the Tierney family.
