First World War – Far From Home

Plan Your Visit

Who were the Allies in the First World War? Few realize they included a remarkably diverse group of people from Africa, Asia, the Caribbean, North America and the Pacific. Challenge your assumptions with this photographic exhibition that pays tribute to the thousands of soldiers and labourers of different nationalities and ethnicities who served on European soil.

An exhibition presented at the Canadian War Museum by the Embassy of Belgium in Ottawa.

Recruits from File Hills, Saskatchewan, Canada, with elders and a government representative, 1915.
