The Royal Canadian Legion Hall Of Honour is found after one is done with the chronological portion of the permanent exhibits. It is a large room with the theme of commemoration in mind. A scale model of the National War Memorial is at its heart.
This is Regeneration Hall, taken from the second floor before descending. A harpist was playing that day. The statues, which we'll look at more tomorrow, are Walter Allward's scale plaster casts for the making of his statues on the Vimy Ridge Memorial.
This display panel is nearby on the balcony; Regeneration Hall is the second of two critical elements of the Museum that the rest of the structure is hinged upon, after Memorial Hall.
Down below, among the plaster cast sculptures, is a model of the Vimy Ridge Memorial in France, Allward's masterpiece.
I have a short video clip I made within Regeneration Hall that day. There are two sounds- the harpist and the recorded sound of wind, an eerie kind of whistle that was recorded when this part of the museum was still open to the elements. I finish this post with two views, of the harp and the musician. When I first arrived in the Hall from above, she was playing Ashokan Farewell. If you've seen Ken Burns' documentary on the American Civil War, you know that tune.
