Other news about donations

In 2011 the Museum took possession of the antique sword of the late Major Percy Ward, a former officer in 6 Field Engineer Company as well as Alderman and real estate businessman in North Vancouver. Ward was one of the first recruits to join the new militia unit in 1911, later serving in France during World War I. His sword was graciously donated by his grandson Gary Silverton.

Details of this donation were made public in an article by Rebecca Aldous, North Shore News, November 3, 2010.
