Students deliver ‘fresh perspective’ on PPCLI exhibit

The updated exhibit showcases a variety of items from both World Wars, the Korean War and peacekeeping missions, along with historic photos of the unit during its time in Victoria and elsewhere. Improvements offer a more detailed and chronological history of PPCLI and the three occasions it was stationed at Work Point barracks in Esquimalt. Each item on display includes a written passage identifying the item and its historical significance.

Des étudiants apportent un regard neuf sur l’exposition du PPCLI

Au fil des ans, l’exposition a été entretenue et mise à jour par d’anciens membres du PPCLI et d’autres anciens combattants. L’un de ces bénévoles est Jack Bates, qui dirige une société historique et un site Web axés sur la riche histoire de l’Armée canadienne sur l’île de Vancouver et dans le Lower Mainland, l’Organization for Preservation of Canadian Military Heritage (OPCMH).
