The Second World War Discovery Box
Presented by CWM Learning Specialist Sandra O’Quinn
Second World War Discovery Box – Here is your opportunity to learn about the CWM’s newest travelling education resource. These Discovery Boxes include authentic and reproduction objects that teachers can borrow, free-of-charge, to use in their classrooms. We, as the Friends, have contributed $30,000 towards this Project; part of the Supply Line Programme. Here is your chance to come out and see what this exciting Project is all about.
Sandra O’Quinn has been a Learning Specialist at the Canadian War Museum since 2006 developing both education and public programmes. She was the Project Lead for the Second World War Discovery Box.
The 18-pounder Field Gun
The 18-pounder Field Gun in Canadian Service by Doug Knight relates the career of the 18-pounder gun in the Royal Canadian Artillery, from the first order from Vickers in 1903 until its retirement during the Second World War. The emphasis in the book is on the gun and, in addition to its service overseas, describes its service in Canada during the First World War, mechanization in the 1930s, and traces the individual history of some of the surviving guns. The text is well illustrated by colour and black and white photographs.
