Second World War: 5-6 May 1945

On these dates, General Charles Foulkes, Commander of the Canadian Corps in the Second World War, met General Johannes Blaskowitz, commander of the German Army Group H, to discuss the surrender of the German Forces in the Netherlands. The meetings took place in the Hotel de Wereld in Wageningen (Netherlands). Two days later, the Second World War would end in Europe with Germany's general surrender to Allied Forces. General Foulkes began his military career as an officer in The Royal Canadian Regiment in 1926; after the war, Foulkes was appointed Chief of the General Staff and subsequently Chairman of the Chiefs of Staff.

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.
