Commemorative Military History Display

AMilitary Uniforms we approach Remembrance Day, the Library is proud to host an impressive display of military memorabilia and artifacts from the collection of William Lilbourne.

William credits his father’s love for building model war planes as the inspiration for his own passion. Over the past 4 years this 26 year old Bradford resident has built an impressive collection of military uniforms and war memorabilia. His first purchase, a German K98 bayonet, was made in September 2010 at the Toronto CNE. Since then William’s collection has grown extensively to also include weaponry, documents, photographs, art and artifacts.

William’s passion goes far beyond simply collecting. He has researched these items extensively; easily apparent when he recounts stories connecting each item to a soldier, a battle or a period of our history. He enjoys sharing this knowledge with others both through his displays and speaking about these fascinating and historically significant items.

Military Medals and Memorabilia

In this time of remembrance, we encourage you to visit the BWG Public Library to view this commemorative display. It will be here until November 22nd.

For more about Canada’s military history and remembrance, please visit the website of Veterans Affairs Canada.
