The Base Borden Military Museum is one of Canada’s largest Military Museum which holds a significant collection of WWI, WWII and post-war armoured vehicles, trucks, and aircraft. The Museum tells the story of Camp Borden and the Various Schools, Corps and Branches that have their heritage vested at Base Borden. Many families of World War 1 and 2 veterans have donated their loved one mementos and equipment from their tours of duty. There are also artifacts and equipment from the Korean conflict. When the Canadian Forces closed their bases in Germany many of the items were sent to the museum at Borden. The military museum has expanded greatly over the last 20 years and it well worth the time to wander through and see great examples of our Military heritage.
There are two large buildings which house the displays and they are within walking distance of each other. Just across from the main museum and the vehicle hangar is Worthington Park, which displays many of the different tanks and artillery used in both world wars. The Major-General F. F. Worthington Memorial Park actually is the Generals final resting place. Worthy, as he was known as, died on 8 December 1967 at Ottawa’s Military Hospital. After his funeral in Ottawa, Worthy’s body was flown by a RCAF Caribou aircraft to Camp Borden and in accordance with his wishes, was interred in Worthington Park. Four Centurion tanks fired a 13 gun salute and three RCAF Chipmunk aircraft did a low-level “fly-past”, in tribute to a great soldier and Canadian.
