Korean War addition to Canadian Headstones

On Sunday walking to see the 10 am changing of the guard ceremony on Parliament Hill I noticed a small plaque near the corner of Lisgar and Elgin by City Hall. We have just marked the 65th anniversary of the signing of the armistice that ended the active fighting in the Korean War so it was a timely find as it contains more than 20 names of those from the National Capital Region who gave their lives their between 1950 and 1953.
The plaque only gives initials, I've added forenames found at the Canadian Virtual War Memorial.
