If a Remembrance Day service isn’t on your schedule for Thursday, the Manitoba Museum is honouring veterans with a historical artifacts display.

The museum will be open from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. to educate visitors on Manitobans who fought in the Second World War.

Lieutenant Colonel Robert Shankland’s medals will be on display, including the extraordinary Victoria Cross, part of the Queen’s Own Cameron Highlanders 100th Anniversary Exhibit.

The anniversary exhibit includes artifacts, maps, and medals from the First and Second World Wars, as well as from Peace Keeping and Peace-making Operations.

The Western Canada Aviation Museum also has activities planned for Remembrance Day, including a tribute to the RCAF Women’s Division and their important contribution to the nation’s war effort during the Second World War, and a tribute to three RCAF airmen from Manitoba during the Second World War.

The museum is open from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Thursday. Find out more on the museum’s blog.
