BCM&CC launches “Young Canuckstorian” video diaries on WWI Bruce County soldiers

In commemoration of Remembrance Day, the BCM&CC has launched a series of short educational videos online, produced in collaboration with The Young Canuckstorian Project team and the 340 Griffin Squadron Air Cadets.  

This collection of resources was produced as part of a project titled Young Canuckstorian: Bruce Remembers.  The launch includes six commemorative video vignettes that highlight the experiences of First World War Bruce County soldiers, nurses and women on the home front, as reflected in their diaries and letters housed in the BCM&CC Archives.  

Working with Young Canuckstorian project founder Mickey Maple and BCM&CC Archives staff, the Cadets wrote and voiced scripts for the videos, which include details of daily life during the war—experiences in the trenches, on the front lines, in training camps, and in respite or recovery in nearby towns and villages. 

The videos premiered in a private screening at the BCM&CC on Friday, November 10 with cadets, their families and legion members all in attendance. 

The videos can now be viewed online at brucemuseum.ca and on The Young Canuckstorian Project YouTube channel. Visit bruceremembers.org for more information on Bruce County soldiers who fought in WWI.  

A special thank you to Young Canuckstorian – Bruce Remembers project sponsors Veterans Affairs Canada’s Commemorative Partnership Program, Royal Canadian Legion Walkerton Branch, Royal Canadian Legion Tobermory Branch and Peter Meyer, in memory of his mother.
