It’s been too long since we posted anything – it’s a sign of how busy we’ve been here!
Canada Day is a week away. (Friday July 1 for those of not from this country.) Every Canada Day we have a big festival. This year will be bigger than ever as it is the Year of the Veteran.
It’s been extremely hectic, what with finalizing bagpipe players, putting together a blockbuster veterans exhibit together with three local collectors, getting the decorations done up for our Victory Train, signing up three telegraphers to do demos, and getting an outdoor display of military vehicles.
Our parking lot, which we will close off to the public, will have five vehicles, almost all WWII-era:
Model GPW (JEEP)
with a Canadian WWII 10cwt trailer for a Jeep
Model WC-52 Weapons Carrier 3/4 ton
Make Canadian U.N. M38A1
Model Willys Jeep
done up in the Canadian Black Watch markings
Make Canadian C.M.P. (Canadian Military Pattern)
Model 15 cwt
We’ll take lots of photos on Canada Day of the rest of the vehicles.
