"Topogragraphy of Grief. Mapping the Great War Dead in London, ON (1914-1921)" is live on Virtual Museums Canada, Community Stories. This exhibition has been developed in partnership by the museum and MA Public History Program at Western University, 2017 Class.Like many other Canadian cities, London, Ontario, suffered the impact of the trench warfare fought in Europe between 1914 and 1918. This exhibit explores collective memory and individual grief, by mapping homesteads in mourning, along with official commemorative sites throughout the city today. While unveiling some of the artefacts produced to commemorate or acknowledge the sacrifices, our research also brought forward the next-of-kin, who were subject to a more personal experience of loss.
The exhibition is available in bilingual format.For past events, click here.
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.
