Palermo Honour Roll

This Honour Roll originally hung in the Palermo Community Hall and was returned to the Palermo community by Halton Region Museum in 2015. It lists the volunteers of the Palermo community who served in the 2nd World War. The document is illuminated and beautifully decorated with the symbols of Canada.

At the bottom, slightly right of the center are the initials AJC. A.J. Casson, the youngest member of a Canadian group of artists known as the Group of Seven, who was the designer of the Honour Roll format, but the original calligraphy of the names in this example is not likely the work of A.J. Casson.
