Canadian War Museum visit...part 2

Good day folks,

November is quickly running past us so I thought I'd better post my follow up to my visit to the Canadian War Museum here in Ottawa.  There are a lot of great artifacts and pieces that can really give an appreciation and inspiration to anyone who has a passing or gaming interest in the Great War.

Previously I highlighted some of the artillery pieces and themed items in the museum.  This time I thought I'd share some of the crew served weapons, small arms, and uniforms of the frontline infantry regiments and battalions.

As always thanks for taking a look, hopefully the pics can help someone's research.  Finally, the last post of this visit will feature the trenchline diorama pieces at the museum.

Take care.
