Join Parks Canada, the Army Museum Halifax Citadel, and the Halifax Citadel Regimental Association as they mark the 100th anniversary of one of the most significant battles of the First World War. The Battle of Passchendaele has come to symbolize the mud and folly of trench warfare. Visitors can see firsthand a First World War Belgian Army uniform inside the Army Museum, while the Halifax Citadel’s trench exhibit serves as the backdrop to understand the hardships and challenges Canadian troops faced as they gained another tactical victory. Join the commemoration and learn more how these events helped shape our nation of today. www.parkscanada.gc.ca/halifaxcitadel
