World War I Project – November 2017

The West Hants Historical Society salutes our local soldiers who died one hundred years ago in 1917 during World War 1. We will always remember your sacrifice.

Note: You can view their military records online by searching for the Regimental Number (Reg No) at the Library and Archives Canada web site as follows:
