Curious about this Thursday's lecture? Here's a little bit about it from our speaker, Brent Wilson:

"Today we associate the act of remembering Canada’s war dead with wearing poppies and attending Remembrance Day services at cenotaphs and other sites, events that developed in the years following the end of the First World War. How did New Brunswickers remember the fallen while the Great War was still being fought?

This lecture will explore how New Brunswick’s soldiers serving on the Western Front honoured their fallen comrades. As well, it examines how people living in the province dealt with the deaths of their loved ones both overseas as well as here at home, before these soldiers left for overseas, had returned home and subsequently succumbed to their wounds, or whose bodies were repatriated back to New Brunswick and were buried in cemeteries located around the province."

Voulez-vous en savoir plus sur la conférence de jeudi? En voici un petit bout par le présenteur, Brent Wilson :

"Aujourd’hui, l’acte de se souvenir des Canadiens morts pendant la guerre est associé au port du coquelicot et au fait d’assister à des services du jour du Souvenir près des cénotaphes, soit des habitudes établies après la fin de la Première Guerre mondiale. Comment les Néo-Brunswickois se souvenaient-ils de ceux qui ont perdu la vie tandis que la Grande Guerre sévissait toujours?

Cette conférence explorera comment les soldats néo-brunswickois au service sur le front occidental rendaient hommage à leurs camarades morts pendant la guerre. Elle examinera aussi comment les gens au Nouveau-Brunswick composaient avec la mort de leurs proches outremer ainsi qu’à domicile; avant que ces soldats partent outremer, quand ils revenaient et succombaient à leurs blessures ou lorsque leur corps était rapatrié dans la province et enterré dans des cimetières ici."
