    We have been blessed with such a mild winter in our region. Warm weather and lots of sunny days. Winter has not impacted upon our daily life.

    The Rev. Art Turnbull, Branch 15 Chaplain

    In January a few of us from Branch 15, Connie Smith, Peter Slade and myself, attended the presentations on the contribution of the Indian Army in World War One. It was a privilege to learn about this contribution by the Indian Forces. The talks were given at the Sikh Museum and at the University of Fraser Valley Indo Canadian Studies Centre in January. We learned about the sacrifices made by our brothers in arms who were part of the British Empire just like we Canadians were at that time. How that war contributed to the making of our respective nations is history worth knowing about. For those of you who missed the talks there is an opportunity to still learn about this story. A standing display, well done and researched, is open to the public at the Indo-Canadian Studies Centre at UFV. This is located off Mackenzie Road, at the second entrance to the campus with paid parking available on site. The display is on until the 8th March. Well worth a half hour of your time, and it is free.
