The emphasis here starts to examine warfare in the air during the war, complete with a fighter mounted overhead.
A panel along with wreckage looks at the extraordinary bravery of Andrew Mynarski, a Victoria Cross winner who gave his life trying to save a fellow crewman on a burning Lancaster bomber.
This painting is by Paul Goranson, titled Air Raid On San Giusto, Pisa, depicting a raid against a German airfield in Italy by Canadian bombers based out of North Africa.
Aside from women working on the war effort at home, women would come to be represented in the branches of the Canadian military abroad in various capacities.
This painting I've shown before. Robert Stewart Hyndman painted this, titled Sergeant M.E. Boreham, The British Empire Medal, in 1945. Myrtle Boreham joined the RCAF in 1942 and served through to the end of the war, receiving the medal in 1944 for her service.
The Canadian military took part in the drive into Italy, and that is examined here.
Among the items here is a walk through reconstruction of a building, with a Canadian soldier on one side of a wall.
And a German on the other.
Where the military went, so too did reporters. Correspondents of the CBC followed the war effort everywhere, sending dispatches home and finding themselves in peril as well.
For today I leave off with this tank, captured during the Italian campaign and today part of the museum's collection.
