If The Cap Fits Wear It!

Fall 2012

Local resident Dr. Dwayne Kostura and Chris Purcell of Edmonton have loaned the Museum items from their personal collections for our Remembrance Day exhibit. Among the artifacts are recruitment posters, ration tins and mess kits along with other personal kit items. Dr. Kostura’s collection highlights trench art – – souvenir and artworks created by soldiers, often from shell casings. These were often made into decorative items such as candle holders and vases.
