Coming Events

The 2018 RUSI Speaker Series - Wednesday, November 14, 5 - 7 pm

Speaker: Cam Cathcart, President, RUSI Vancouver

Topic: “Canada & The Great War: Unity and Discord”

You’re invited to join RUSI Vancouver for the presentation “Canada & the Great War: Unity and Discord” by Cam Cathcart, President of RUSI Vancouver on Wednesday, November 14.

When Britain declared war on Germany in August 1914 it sparked a conflict known as the Great War. Then, Canada declared war on Germany a few days later. By the time World War One ended in 1918, Canada suffered heavy losses, leading to a conscription crisis that transformed a unified country to one of discord.

On Wednesday, November 14 join us at 5:00 pm in the Officers Mess at the Bessborough Armoury, 2025 West 11th Avenue, Vancouver. The presentation begins at 5:30 pm followed by a question and answer session. The event will conclude by 7:00 pm. Refreshments will be available. An RSVP is not necessary.

“Canada and the Great War: Unity and Discord” on November 14 will be the final presentation in the RUSI Vancouver Speaker Series for 2018. The next series will begin in early 2019.


RUSI Vancouver members gather for lunch on Wednesdays at 12:00 Noon at the Officers' Mess of the 15th Field Regiment (RCA) located in the Bessborough Armouries, 2013 West 11th Avenue, Vancouver, BC.
