A new commemorative licence plate is available in British Columbia for recipients of the Memorial Cross.

In a special ceremony held at the Beatty Street Drill Hall in Vancouver, the first person to receive the BC Memorial Cross recipient licence plate, Ron Cully, was presented with his new plate which will honour the memory and the sacrifice of his beloved son Matthew who died serving our country.

The Memorial Cross is a memento that was created in 1919 and is currently granted to the loved ones of Canadian Armed Forces personnel who have fallen in service, or whose death was attributed to their service. It is granted by the Government of Canada to up to three individuals that the military member had named, and is often referred to as the Silver Cross.
