"Folkestone", he said. "What a dump!"

February 1, 2018 (12:00 pm - 1:00 pm)

Location: Acadia University Art Gallery


In May 2016, Wendy Robicheau spent a long weekend on the Kent Coast of England in the town of Folkestone. Why? Partially to rest before heading to the continent but mostly to see where the 85th Battalion was camped at Shorncliffe and to see the Metropole. What Robicheau found was completely surprising. 

Wendy G. Robicheau is an Archivist at Acadia University. Her research interest, Acadia and the First World War, prompted her to do a pilgrimage and follow the 'Acadia Highlanders' to the Western Front and back.

This free event is offered to the public, students, faculty, and staff as part of the Acadia Lifelong Learning Lunchtime Learning Series.
