In Their Steps / Through Their Eyes

Commemorating the 80th Anniversary of D-Day and the Battle of Normandy, students from Owen Sound District Secondary School and Georgian Bay Community School present the research they preformed on local men involved in the Invasion of Western Europe. The students traveled to France in time for the June 6th ceremonies and paid tribute to these soldiers at their gravesites. 

Created in partnership with the Meaford Museum, the Owen Sound servicemen are represented in Billy Bishop Museum, while those from Meaford are featured there. 

Thank you to the Grey and Simcoe Foresters Foundation for sponsoring this exhibit. 

"Crusaders Serving the World:" Going to War With the Royal Canadian Air Force

2024 marks the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Royal Canadian Air Force. To celebrate, 14 airmen and airwomen are highlighted for their service in the Air Force during the Second World War. Their stories provide insights into the RCAF Women’s Division, the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan, Ferry Command, Bomber Command and Fighter Command. These individuals served in theatres around the globe helping to achieve victory in the air war.

Thank you to the RCAF Centennial Fund for their contributions to this exhibit.
