Join us this Saturday our Great War Talk. We are starting this years exciting talk series off with a look at art during the Great War. We look at the War Arts Program, learn some more about some specific paintings.

Then March 4 we will continue the series with Knights of the Air.

The picture below features K. K. Forbes painting Canadian Artillery in Action. The two smaller photographs are pictures taken by Australian photographer Frank Hurley. “The morning after the first battle of Paschendaele” Showing wounded Australian troops. There are quite a few version of this picture featuring different dramatic cloud formations. They are actually composite pictures used for propaganda purposes and extra drama.

Comments about the trench display

Not long ago a group of cadets visited the trench. As usual our volunteers were at hand to guide the group through the trench and provide historical information.

A short while later the following comment was send to us:
“Indeed it was the best tour experience I had, especially the realism of the trenches being displayed.  They surpass the quality of the display in Ottawa War Museum.  Again thank you to your volunteers showing us the history of WW1.”
