WW1 S'side men from Ida Doucette via Mik

June 2016 marked the 100th anniversary of the departure of the Island’s 105th Battalion for WWI overseas service. In honour of the men of C Company of the 105th, who trained in Summerside, Culture Summerside took on a number of projects based around the war and the men of the C Company. These projects included audio vignettes, interpretive panels, and the ongoing research into the men of the 105th Battalion.
