Vimy, Symbol of Canada. The Royal Canadian Regiment in the 
First World War

 

An all-immersive experience, bilingual, virtual reality, hands-on interactive, artefacts and archives recently uncovered to mark the Centennial of the First World War while featuring a symbol of Canada in its 150th Year. Many companies have worked for this project, each and every one contributing their unique expertise (RedRhino, SimWave Consulting, Canadigm) . Professor Jonathan Vance is our guest speaker for the opening event and press conference Last, but not least, the project was possible with funding from the Directorate of History and Heritage, Section 5 Museums and Historical Collections.

The Royal Canadian Regiment Museum, as a component of The Royal Canadian Regiment, will preserve, collect and present artifacts, archives and other militaria that are relevant for the history of the Regiment in order to assist in building pride, esprit and solidarity amongst all members of The RCR family. The Museum will also foster a deeper understanding of the Regimental experience, within the broader context of military and Canadian history, among other veterans, communities in the London area and all Canadians.

The RCR Museum will promote and enhance the pride that Canadians have in their military and its achievements through ensuring they know the story of one of our nation's great Regiments.
