University of Western Ontario
-The J.J. Talman Regional Room in the D.B. Weldon Library at The University of Western Ontario in London, Canada is home to a unique archival collection of books, newspapers and ephemera, as well as many documents and records of a public or personal nature. Often items are donated to the University when their owners believe they may be of interest to researchers. Such was the case with an exceptional collection of letters

The Memorial Museum Passchendaele 1917 - in Zonnebeke, Belgium has started a new project --- the Passchendaele Archives.
The third battle of Ypres ended when the Canadians took the destroyed village of Passchendaele in November 1917.
Before them, the British and Australians suffered many casualties. Many men
died, some of them have a grave, others have not. The project wants to
put faces and personal stories on the headstones and names of the victims of
the battle of Passchendaele and needs photographs and stories
of soldiers who died between July 12 and Nov 15, 1917.
