The eleventh in a series of quarterly newsletters recognizing 100th anniversary events of the First World War is now ready. We are continuing to highlight significant and/or interesting events, people, stories and artifacts from that war with an emphasis on Edmonton and the 49th Battalion.
In this issue we highlight the 49th Battalion in the Vimy Ridge sector as the Canadian Corps builds up to the epic Battle of Vimy Ridge. We also have articles on Edmonton’s 202nd (Sportsmen’s) Battalion, the Edmonton Regiment in England in the 1st quarter of 1942, the 2nd Battalion Edmonton Regiment at home, and on current museum activities.
Anyone wishing to be included on our email contact list to received copies of our newsletter should email us at email@example.com.
