The 50th Anniversary Naval Reserve Plaque is a rarely seen plaque because it resides on Deadman's Island in Stanley Park.  Deadman's Island is part of the HMCS Discovery Naval Reserve so is off limits to the public.  We were able to get photos of it during a rare public tour.

The guns are obviously not there anymore.  If anybody knows what happened to them, please let us know.
