In 2012, Wartime Heritage began researching those from our local community of Yarmouth Town and County of Nova Scotia who’s names appear on the Yarmouth Cenotaph and prepared web pages for each individual.  In 2014, as a World War I Centenary Initiative, the Association began to identity  individuals with connections to Yarmouth Town and County who served during World War I.   At present, the list contains over 1,554 men and women.  In 2016 a listing of the casualties of Shelburne and Digby Counties, Nova Scotia, were added. Information in Remembering World War I is updated regularly. If you know of someone missing from our list or you recognize any of the existing names, we encourage you to please share photos, letters, and memories with us so we may include them in the collection.

In 2017, the Association expanded its research to include all Nova Scotia World War II casualties.  Information in Remembering World War II is updated regularly.

Telegraphist Air Gunners Yarmouth, Nova Scotia, has a unique connection to the Telegraphist Air Gunners (TAGs) Fleet Air Arm, Royal Navy of World War II.  Of the three thousand TAGs trained, five hundred seventy completed their training in Yarmouth at RCAF Station Yarmouth - East Camp. Over the years Wartime Heritage has maintained a connection with Telegraphist Air Gunners who served in World War II and the Association has attended Memorial Services in England at Lee-on-Solent on a number of occasions. Wartime Heritage has attempted to collect as much information as possible on TAGS and continues to update the website. The site contains articles, stories, and photos.  Remembering the Telegraphist Air Gunners
