Today we remember the No. 2 Construction Battalion, Canada first only all Black regimen in WWI. Each year an annual remembrance service is held in Pictou, Nova Scotia, at the historic location that these brave Men accepted the call in 1916.
Due to COVID-19 restrictions, we are unable gather this year to commemorate this important part of Canadian history. We felt it important that the memory and legacy of the No. 2 is remembered. We have put together some highlights from previous years to view.
Today we remember and salute those brave Men of the No. 2 who blazed the trail. (Black Cultural Centre)
