"On July 26, 1933, this memorial Cairn, bearing the names of 8 men killed in action was dedicated to those from Bayfield who served and sacrificed in World War I.  Virtually every eligible man and two nurses volunteered for service.  Of those, one in three would never return to the shores of Lake Huron.  Those who did return where affected for life by their many wounds.

At a re-dedication ceremony on August 10, 1947, the names of those killed in World War II were added to this Cairn.  As in World War I, virtually every able bodied man in the community signed up to serve.  Casualties were fewer but war once more profoundly scarred this village.
