Celebrating the 70th Anniversary of The Canadian Women's Army Corps at the CWM

Saturday September 17th the Canadian War Museum will be putting on display Mr. Douglas Townend's collection of memorabilia in celebration of the 70th anniversary of CWAC. The CWAC were a key to the wartime efforts during the Second World War as non-combatant roles both at home and abroad. CWAC allowed women to serve in the Canadian Military for the first time and was later integrated into the Canadian Armed Forces during the 1960s.
