VIDEO: Lest We Forget mural in Cloverdale’s Veterans Square demolished

Building demolition part of planned Museum of Surrey expansion

The “Lest We Forget” mural in Cloverdale’s Veterans Square was demolished Wednesday morning, as part of the planned Museum of Surrey expansion.

The mural, which featured local veteran Bill Larson, occupied a spot of honour in Veterans Square since 2005, and was a backdrop for more than a decade of Remembrance Day ceremonies held at the Cloverdale Cenotaph.

The “Lest We Forget” mural’s story will live on, as museum volunteers have digitized the mural.
