Living Statues brings Newfoundland soldiers of WWI to modern day St. John's
The Rooms in St. John's is gearing up for this summer's opening of The Royal Newfoundland Regiment Gallery — the largest First World War exhibit in Canada.
- Royal Newfoundland Regiment WW I gallery will hold great pride, Rick HIllier says
- The Ennis Sisters honour WW I fallen in video for I Will Sing You Home
- Allan Hawco, Mark Critch to trace steps of Newfoundland Regiment in new documentary
As they build towards this summer, which is also the 100th anniversary of the tragedy of Beaumont Hamel, the museum and art gallery is putting off a number of events throughout the province as part of the Remember Them campaign.
This week, The Rooms sent young people to downtown St. John's dressed up as World War One soldiers from the Newfoundland Regiment, to spread the message about the campaign.
