The City of Canada Bay Heritage Society invite you to hear local studies librarian David Sansome as he explores World War Two and the Canada Bay Connection. The impact of the Second World War on the local community in Canada Bay can in many ways be seen as a reflection of the experience of Australia more broadly. David Sansome will reveal how parts of the local area became training grounds for Australian and American soldiers, while local industries were geared to war production, producing everything from ships to ration packs for soldiers.

The talk will be followed by light refreshments and a chance to chat with the speaker.

When: Saturday 6 May 2017, 1:30pm.
Where: City of Canada Bay Museum, 1 Bent Street, Concord.
Cost: Free – donations welcome
Contact: heritage@canadabayheritage.asn.au
