Fraternity has moved. Whereabouts unknown in 2019. Brothers in Arms was commissioned in 1920 by the New York City chapter of the Alpha Delta Phi fraternity, and sold by subscription to the 25 then active chapters in the US and Canada, of which Aitken himself was a member. It is a memorial to the 93 Alpha Delta Phi fraternity members who died in WWI, and shows a wounded American and Canadian officer assisting one another off of the battlefield. Fraternity no longer in possession of sculpture “Brothers in Arms”. Several examples are for sale online in 2019.
