Wartime Heritage Introduces a New WebsiteOctober 22, 2012The Wartime Heritage Association has launched its new website. With a new design and colour scheme the site will focus mainly on the posting of articles and stories relating to World War I and World War II as the Association moves toward its latest initiative.Over the years the research and development of material for scripts, research conducted by history students at Yarmouth Consolidated Memorial High School, and various initiatives undertaken by individual members of the Association have resulted in a large collection of stories and articles. The material collected relates to Veterans, RCAF Station Yarmouth (East and West Camps), Camp 60 (Canadian Infantry Basic Training Center), Telegraphist Air Gunners (Fleet Air Arm Royal Navy) and the recollections of the war years, especially by individuals in the Yarmouth area. Some of the material has been presented in various stage and video productions but has not been presented in written articles or story format.“The time has come to start writing and publishing some of this material.” said the Association President, George Egan. “There are filing cabinets and boxes full of material and my hope is that all this material can be reviewed, organized, and published on the Wartime Heritage website.”The major focus of the old website was on the various stage and video productions produced between 2003 and 2008 by 440 Productions and Wartime Heritage whereas the major focus of the new website will be on stories and articles. The new website has however, maintained the majority of previously posted material, including the news items and performance related articles and photo galleries. The new website will be updated on a regular basis and visitors to the site will be able to view an updated list to the story and photo archives as well as material relating to the history of 440 Productions.
