Building Remembrance from Beaumont Hamel to Gallipoli


Date: Nov 3
7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Where: Theatre

Shortly after the end of the First World War, the Government of Newfoundland, led by Lt. Col Thomas Nangle, applied to the Battle Exploits Committee to erect six national memorials near places where the Royal Newfoundland Regiment fought and died during the war. Newfoundland was granted all six locations. Four were erected in France, one in Belgium, the sixth was destined for Gallipoli, Turkey. It would take more than a century to complete what Nangle coined The Trail of the Caribou. Project Manager & Historian, Frank Gogos, will be here to share the evolution of the Trail of the Caribou from 1919 to 2021, and provide an insider look into completing the final memorial several generations later.
