A stained glass window was presented to Bramshott Church in 1945 and 1954 to commemorate the Canadian Forces' association with Bramshott. click Bramshott life for more information.

Between the wars Women from the Liphook parish church would place red, white and blue posies every year on July 1st, Canada's National Day, or on the Sunday nearest to July 1st. They placed one hand made posy on each Canadian graves. This custom was kept up until the 1940s, if not later. The same Sunday has been marked from the 1930s by a special service at Bramshott church. Ever since 1942, with one short break after the war, the service has been attended by representatives of the Canadian authorities, the Canadian Veterans' Association, and the local branch of the Royal British Legion, with their banners. Wreaths are laid at the Cross in the Canadian section of the churchyard and the Canadians lunch with the village afterwards.These days with the local scout groups to help ,each grave on or near the 1st July or Canada's National Day ,has their own wooden cross with a poppy placed on them to remember the Canadians who have passed away. they have never been forgotten.
