The Royal Canadian Legion Everett Branch No. 88 in Chester Basin, Nova Scotia is named in remembrance of F/76600, Trooper Everett Eugene Borgald, the son of Robie and Gladys Irene Borgald, of Halifax, Nova Scotia.

He enlisted in the Canadian Army at Halifax on December 30, 1942. Trooper Borgald embarked for Britain on July 16, 1943.

He landed in France for service with the British Columbia Regiment on July 23, 1944.

He was killed in action on August 23, 1944. His Service Awards included the 1939-45 Star, the France and Germany Star, the Defence Medal, the Canadian Volunteer Service Medal with clasp, and the War Medal 1939-45.
