Speaker Series Review – The Ontario Regiment and WWI

Once again, thank you to all of our supportive OHS Members and members of the community for attending March’s Speaker Series.  In honour of the 100th anniversary of the start of World War I, we had the Ontario Regiment Museum present on Oshawa’s own Ontario Regiment and their involvement in World War I.  Rod Henderson led the overall presentation, museum volunteers showed off the uniforms and challenges they may have presented, and other ORM members were on hand to help answer any questions about the Regiment or about the Museum.

More information on the Ontario Regiment Museum can be found on their website: http://www.ontrmuseum.ca/

Speaker Series Review – Camp 30

What a way to start our 2014 Speaker Series!  Thank you to everyone who attended February’s Speaker Series, where we welcomed Charles Taws, Curator of the Clarington Museum and Archives, who gave a fascinating talk on the history of Camp 30, a training school turned POW camp during World War II.  The history that can be found in our own backyards is truly amazing.

World War II, prisoners of war, and the Battle of Bowmanville. When it began as a boys training school in the 1920s, it was considered to be the most progressive institution of its kind in Canada; World War II brought a new importance to school when it was used as Prisoner of War Camp 30, housing German prisoners of war captured by the Allies.  On February 18, Charles Taws, Curator of the Clarington Museum and Archives, will delve into the history of Camp 30 and share the fascinating story of Bowmanville’s newest National Historic Site.

The Oshawa Historical Society’s February Speaker Series is taking place Tuesday, February 18 at 7PM. The meetings are held at the Oshawa Public Library, McLaughlin Branch Auditorium, located at 65 Bagot Street, Oshawa.
