First World War Centennial Links April 20th 2015

So many events, commemorations and  stories are coming out since it’s the centennial of the First World War. It can be hard to keep track of everything. Here are  a few links that caught our attention in the last week or so. 

Queen honors Calgary Highlanders, Royal Hamilton Light Infantry and the Canadian Scottish Regiments. This is part of ceremonies for the Second Battle of Ypres. 

New Zealand exhibition opens. Looks fascinating particularly Peter Jackson’s involvement how technology is integrated with the artifacts.  

Every year around this time  poll results are released by the Vimy Foundation  discussin Canadians engagement with our military history. Here are this years numbers. Renaming the $20? 

And finally in more museum news, Lethbridge Military Museum opens  When doing research for trips it’s often smaller museums like this that have some of the most unusual artifacts. Hopefully they’ll have an online presence shortly.
