Wartime Heritage                                   ASSOCIATION
December 2017 Our Association has been an evolving entity over the past twenty five years and through our various initiatives we have attempted to preserve our Canadian wartime heritage and history.  Through our website the Wartime Heritage Association is now able to present our research, the history, the stories, articles of the war years, and a history of our initiatives.  The website now has some 1,145 pages. Our Facebook page and our YouTube site also maintains the remembrance of the wartime generation. “Those Who Served” an initiatives of the Wartime Heritage Association is an attempt to collect and present on our website the wartime records, stories, and photos of the men and women who served in World War I from Yarmouth Town and County, Shelburne and Digby counties.   Other similar initiatives are    “Remembering the Telegraphist Air Gunners” and their connection to Yarmouth and the “Korean War Remembrance”. This past year, 2017, has been a busy year for the Association, as we began the research to list all  Nova Scotia casualties of WWII. Over the past twelve months we have had some 140,000 visits to our website, with visitors from many countries around the world, viewing some 350,000 pages of our research. Daily visits to the website continues to increase. The Association promotes the importance of remembering the contribution of the men and women of the war years .  To remember the men and women of the war years and their achievement is to understand our wartime heritage. To emulate their qualities is to build a better society today and tomorrow. As the wartime generation ages the importance of what our Association does takes on an even greater importance. The success of our initiatives is possible through generous financial sponsorship of those who believe in the importance of remembering and the support of our initiatives. To our many supporters and sponsors we owe a sincere thank you. George Egan Chairman The Wartime Heritage Association
