City Partners with The PEI Regiment Museum

City of Charlottetown Partners with The PEI Regiment Museum for Pop-up Exhibit
Posted on 11/04/2020
To honour the sacrifice and service of those that fought and continue to fight for our freedom, the City of Charlottetown has partnered with The Prince Edward Island Regiment Museum to create the historic exhibit, Military Service in Charlottetown that explores the City’s wartime and military history.

This is the first installment of the pop-up exhibit series that focuses on an aspect of Charlottetown’s history or traditions, located on the first floor of the Confederation Court Mall near the escalator.

City Staff have searched the archival collection and The Prince Edward Island Regiment Museum has provided selections from its extensive collection of images and artefacts to create the exhibit. Among the wide variety of items on display, are historic photos of Charlottetown’s veterans and parades, various First World War and Second World War uniforms, and an array of military badges and flags.

The City of Charlottetown and The Prince Edward Island Regiment Museum would like to thank the Confederation Court Mall for donating space, and all of the individuals who have generously contributed materials to make this exhibit possible. It is through these donations that we learn about our past and share the knowledge with the public. For more information on donating photos or allowing us to scan images, please contact the Planning and Heritage Department at 902-629-4051 or nmunn@charlottetown.ca.

2020 marks 75 years since the end of the Second World War and the public is encouraged to stop by the pop up exhibit in the Confederation Court Mall to take some time to remember those that have sacrificed so much for the country. The exhibit is available from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday to Saturday and runs until November 27, when a new display celebrating the City’s holiday traditions will be launched in the space.
