This is Victoria’s military heritage from every angle, all in one place for the first time, drop in anytime from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Fort Rodd Hill and Fisgard Lighthouse will also open its new exhibit that day in the casemates barracks, called 100 Years of Remembrance, featuring the family wartime stories of the very staff who run the site. It is full of personal tales of love and loss, and invites visitors to ask the question: “Who do WE remember?”
