One of the two rather small German feldkanone (field canons), which were captured near Bourlon, France, on September 27, 1918, sits in National Battlefields Park in Quebec City. 

Most people associate National Battlefields Park with the momentous events of 1759 and 1760, despite monuments of other wars. For example, across the road from Grey Terrace are two German feldkanone (field cannons), which were captured near Bourlon, France, on September 27, 1918, only weeks before the end of the Great War.
