The event will be held on June 6, 2017 from 7:00 - 8:30 pm. It promises to be an enlightening evening as the talk will cover cemeteries and memorials from Amsterdam to Paris. It is quite timely in that July 1st is the 101st Anniversary of the Battle at the Somme.

Canadian Historic Battlefields: memorials and cemeteries: Amsterdam to Paris

Visit some of the most iconic historic locales of the twentieth century, from Amsterdam to Paris to Gllipoli. Al Sangster will focus on WW1 and WW11 battlegrounds and memorial sites, as well as associated historic towns and villages.

WW1 sites include Ypres Salient and the Somme area, including Vimy Ridge and Beaumont Hamel. WW11 sites include Dunkirk; Dieppe and Normandy with Amsterdam, Brussel and Bruges.  In addition, Camp Westerbrok will be featured. Lest we forget, this talk is particularly poignant as we celebrate Canada 150, because July 1 is not only the 150th anniversary of Confederation, but is also the 101st Anniversary of the Battle of the Somme, a defining moment in the history of our nation.
