The Dedication begins at 9:40 am Wednesday May 11th, followed by tea and a tour

The British Cap Badges were donated to the museum by the Society for Military History. The museum is honored to have received this collection of 212 badges of which 189 are on display and is dedicated to the valor and sacrifice of the men and women of the British Empire during WWII. This dedication is the opening celebration event for the museum’s 25th anniversary themed “Women and Canada at War”. Our theme this year 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.

Honored guests include;
Craig Felker, Executive Director for the Society For Military History
Steve Waldron, Curator for the 31 Service Battalion Museum, Hamilton Ontario
David Smith, Living Historian and Volunteer, 31 Service Battalion Museum
Andrew Smith, Living Historian and Volunteer, 31 Service Battalion Museum
Martin Causer, Pennsylvania State Representative, 67th Legislative District
