|The Trail of the Caribou|
In each of Newfoundland's
five battlefield parks the massive bronze caribou stands in a natural setting,
surmounting a rocky crag from which he surveys the surrounding country,
gazing in the direction in which the Newfoundlanders faced the foe.
The Fighting Newfoundlander
by Colonel G.W.L. Nicholson, C.D. The statue of the Caribou is the emblem of the Royal Newfoundland Regiment. It was the work of the English sculptor Basil Gotto. It is described as a noble stag, standing with head thrown high in defiance, bugling his battle challenge.
There are six statues. Clicking on the name or the thumbnail photo will show you an enlarged photo:
