Event description

Description

Join us as we walk through Calgary's Currie Barracks to revisit the First World War through monuments named after the 14 battle honours from 1915-1917.

The 20th Century was shaped by the outcome of the First World War. Canada found its full stature as a nation on the battlefields of France and Belgium. Costly victories made Canada known and showed what the nation could do both in the field and on the industrial front. It is rewarding to revisit this War and see how it has influenced both military and political developments for a century after. It was in this context that women were given the vote. There will be opportunities to discuss the key issues of the war and the peace which followed. The walk is about 2.5 km, on the way you will visit 14 battle honours memorialized on interpretive plaques.


Please meet at The Military Museums' main entrance at 9:45 am.

Walk begins at 10 am.
