Wild Rose Overseas: Albertans In The Great War
July 28, 2014 – December 15, 2014
A young province’s march to war is explored through artefacts, personal stories and important works of art. From training to the trenches, from demobilization to homecoming, this heritage exhibition tells the story of Alberta’s major units during the war.
Some of the unique artefacts included are items related to well-known airman Wop May, an extremely rare complete WW1 naval uniform, and a pigeon message canister. Artworks will include paintings by Inglis Sheldon-Williams.
