Recognizing 25th Anniversary Of Eldred WWII Museum

Rep. Martin Causer took part in a dedication Wednesday of a new display at the Eldred WWII Museum and presented a citation in recognition of the museum’s 25th anniversary. The display of British Cap Badges was donated to the museum by the Society for Military History and is meant to recognize the valor and sacrifice of the men and women of the British Empire during WWII. The dedication was also the opening event for the museum’s 25th anniversary, themed “Women and Canada at War.” The theme is based on the area women who worked at the local munitions plant assembling line, providing arms for the British before and after America became involved in the war.
