Swiss Air memorial

September 2 1998 Swiss Air Flight 111 crashed 5km off the south coast of Nova Scotia. Local fishing villages responded immediately but all 229 crew and passengers perished in the crash. This is the memorial at Bayswater. It reads in part:

In grateful recognition of all those who worked tirelessly to provide assistance in the recovery operations and comfort to the families and friends during a time of distress.

It was a sad (and busy for some of us) occasion.
