Memorial Walk

Led By: Major (retired) Lloyd Northcott

Meeting Place:: The Military Museums (4520 Crowchild Trail SW)

Date:: Sat May 5, 2018 Time: 2:00 - 4:00PM

Duration:: 2 hrs

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. On the way you will visit 14 battle honours memorialized on interpretive plaques. The walk of about 2.5 km includes a chance to sit and enjoy some refreshments at the half way point if desired.

Major (retired) Lloyd Northcott is a graduate of the Royal Military College (Kingston), The University of Rochester (M.A. History), the British Army Staff College, and the Vancouver School of Theology (M Div). He was for 15 years an officer in the Royal 22d Regiment (Infantry) and then served as a reserve army chaplain after he was ordained to the Anglican Church ministry. Lloyd is Padre of The Military Museums and is an amateur historian.
