Life & Legacy of Sir Arthur Currie

Now accepting bookings!

Museum Strathroy-Caradoc has developed a travelling exhibition that highlights the extraordinary life and military career of Strathroy-area native Sir Arthur Currie. Thanks to support from the Museum Assistant Program via the Department of Canadian Heritage, the Museum has developed this exhibit and made it available for circulation to host museums starting in January 2014.

Drawing from sources and materials relevant to his early life in rural Strathroy, Ontario, the exhibit considers the influence of his youth on his remarkable rise through the ranks from a militia gunner before the First World War, to become the first Canadian commander of the Canadian Expeditionary Force. The exhibit traces the humble roots of Canada's greatest military commander and celebrates his achievements and legacy as a source of national pride.
