Ed Talk | Lest We Forget – Cranbrook at War: Home and Away

November 24, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Lest We Forget – Cranbrook at War: Home and Away

On November 24th, the Cranbrook History Centre is inviting local author Jim Cameron to join us for another wonderful and moving presentation. Anyone who attended his talk on July 21st will remember how powerfully Jim can tell a story. This time, we are welcoming Jim for a night of remembrance. He will weave a tale of the people of Cranbrook and how they experienced the Boer War, and the First and Second World Wars. From the lives of those who stayed home, to the brave soldiers who never returned, come join us to learn about the impact of the wars on this small rocky mountain town.

More About Our Presenter:

Jim Cameron was born and raised in Cranbrook, B.C., where his family roots go back well over a century. A professional musician, artist and author, he has dedicated a great deal of time and research to local Cranbrook history. Writer of the popular and long-running newspaper column “Janus – Cranbrook Then and Now,” he has more recently authored two very successful history books: Cranbrook Then and Now – Volumes One and Two.
