Our Vimy 100 Speaker Series began with a presentation by British historian Andy Robertshaw. Andy is an author and historian who makes the past come alive for audiences of all ages. He was the lead historical consultant for Spielberg's film adaptation of War Horse. He's a regular consultant and onscreen expert for a host of TV and radio shows, and he has spearheaded numerous archaeological investigations along the western front. He is an honorary lecture at University College London and regularly consults the British army on historical matters.
The Vimy 100 Speaker Series continues on Wednesday November 16th, as we welcome local author and historian Ted Barris who will share stories and remembrances about the defining battle of Vimy Ridge as we lead up to the 100th Anniversary commemorations in April.
Third in the Series we welcome historian Rod Henderson. Rod is the author of the spectacular new book, Fideles et Paratus: A History of the Ontario Regiment written as part of the 150th Anniversary Celebration of the Ontario Regiment.
Thank you for supporting our USS Vimy 100th Anniversary students and upcoming events. Lest we forget.
