A Woman’s Touch: Supporting Canadian Servicemen’s Resilience in Europe, 1943–47

In the third installment of the LCMSDS Maple Leaf Route Webinar Series, Sarah Glassford will explore the emotional dimensions of the Canadian presence in Europe during the later years of the Second World War. As Canadian servicemen amassed in Britain, then advanced through Italy, Normandy, and the Low Countries, 641 women of the Canadian Red Cross Corps Overseas Detachment followed close behind.

Dear Colleagues:

I just wanted to inform you about a newly available manuscripts collection here at the Amistad Research Center. The Margueruite Cartwright papers are now open and available thanks to funding assistance from the National Historical Publications and Records Commission.

The Maple Leaf Route Webinar Series

In partnership with the Canadian Battlefields Foundation and the Juno Beach Centre Association, the Laurier Centre for Military Strategic and Disarmament Studies is pleased to announce the Maple Leaf Route Webinar Series. Every two weeks from May to September, we will be following Canadian and British Commonwealth soldiers as they landed on D-Day in June 1944 and fought their way inland at the Battle of Normandy.
