COURAGE REMEMBERED: Naval reservist to speak at Maritime Museum

Speaker presents on Canada’s involvement in global conflicts, veterans

The Maritime Museum invites the public to extend their tribute to Canadian veterans and attend a lecture by naval reservist Rebecca Garnham from the Memory Project on the afternoon of Remembrance Day (Nov. 11). She will speak about Canada’s involvement in global conflicts and remembering veterans.

Garnham joined the Royal Canadian Naval Reserves in November 2009 and after completing her training as a maritime surface and sub-surface officer, she served onboard HMCS Glace Bay for two years, and is now posted at HMCS Tecumseh in Calgary.

She was deployed on various operations, including an anti-drug trafficking operation in the Gulf of Mexico, and in the Great Lakes.

“I enjoy speaking about the military and it’s contributions to Canada,” said Garnham in a release. “Many members of my family have served in the military…and so I am fiercely proud of our veterans and their sacrifices.”

The lecture begins at 1 p.m. and entrance is by donation. Seating is limited. The Museum’s holiday hours are from noon to 4 p.m. Saturday.
