Preserving Memory - First World War Digitization Day and Armoury Tour

The Great War Centenary Association – Brantford, Brant County, Six Nations needs your help to commemorate the Centenary of the First World War. Through our project, “Doing Our Bit,” we are carefully documenting and preserving the local and family history aspect of the Great War.

On October 1, 2016 from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. at the Sergeant William Merrifield VC Armoury, we invite you to bring in your photographs, letters, medals and other artifacts to have them digitized or photographed.

The digital images we take will be added to the “Doing Our Bit” website.

As an added feature to this event, the public is invited to take a brief historical tour of the Brantford Armoury.  Tours will start at 10.30 and will continue on the half hour.
