RUSI Plans Military History Presentations
RUSI Vancouver is exploring staging a series of presentations at the Bessborough Armoury commencing this coming September. Similar RUSI presentations were held at the BC Regiment Drill Hall several years ago, all of which met with great success.
As this year is the 100th anniversary of the end First World War, Canada’s role in that war will be a primary topic. A second will focus on BC’s home front during WW1, while another would look at how Vancouver has remembered it’s fallen for the past 100 years.
Current affairs subjects may also be included such as Canadian defence policy in the Arctic, military deployments to Africa, and how changing world trade relations and may affect Canada’s foreign policy in the future.
RUSI Vancouver is currently discussing the proposed early evening presentations with the 15 Field (RCA) Regiment regarding use of Armoury facilities, preferably on Wednesday evenings from 5 to 7 pm.
Watch this website for confirmation of dates and time, and details on subjects to be presented.
