23 - 29 April 2017: National Volunteer Week
The National Volunteer Week is an excellent way to acknowledge our dear Volunteers and extend our gratitude for their commitment and enthusiasm. They make the difference! THANK YOU.
Second World War: 5-6 May 1945
On these dates, General Charles Foulkes, Commander of the Canadian Corps in the Second World War, met General Johannes Blaskowitz, commander of the German Army Group H, to discuss the surrender of the German Forces in the Netherlands. The meetings took place in the Hotel de Wereld in Wageningen (Netherlands). Two days later, the Second World War would end in Europe with Germany's general surrender to Allied Forces. General Foulkes began his military career as an officer in The Royal Canadian Regiment in 1926; after the war, Foulkes was appointed Chief of the General Staff and subsequently Chairman of the Chiefs of Staff.
