A push for a military museum

The Telegram spoke this weekend with Rev. Ian Wishart, history enthusiast, past chairman of the Regimental Advisory Council, and a man who has also served as chaplain of the Newfoundland Militia District and the Royal Newfoundland Regiment.

We need a proper military museum for the city and for the province, and the museum must note Beaumont Hamel and the Royal Newfoundland Regiment, but not in a way that dominates or obscures other service or sacrifice.” Read the full article at The Telegram via the link below.
