  • Print

The Transcona Historical Museum will detail the community’s wartime service in advance of Remembrance Day.

The museum is hosting an exhibit called The Ultimate Sacrifice: Remembering the Fallen at Kildonan Place Shopping Centre from Nov. 5 to 11. The exhibit opening will officially be celebrated on Nov. 5 at noon, with members of the Royal Canadian Legion Transcona Branch No. 7 Colour Party, the École Centrale choir, and Korean War veterans, among others in attendance.

The exhibit will feature names and photographs of the 119 Transconians who died in the First and Second World Wars, as well as stories of 14 of those soldiers. As well, there will be information about Transcona’s links to the Korean War to mark the 60th anniversary of the signing of the Korean War Armistice, the stories of the seven Manitobans killed in action in Afghanistan, and the names and photographs of the 158 Canadians killed in action in Afghanistan.

Over 400 Transconians enlisted for the First World War and over 800 did for the Second World War.
