City Launches Veterans Project Ahead of Remembrance Day
Posted on 11/03/2023
The City of Charlottetown, together with partners T3 Transit and the Prince Edward Island Regiment Museum, have launched the Charlottetown Veterans Project to honour residents who have served their country and protected our freedom.

“This is an excellent opportunity to publicly honour Charlottetown’s veterans who have sacrificed so much for their country,” said Mayor Philip Brown. “We hope this project encourages the public to take a moment and remember their service.”

Posters featuring Charlottetown veterans have been placed in six bus shelter locations around the city. Each poster includes a veteran’s photo, their medals, and the branch of the armed forces they served in. Veterans featured include Brigadier General William W. “Bill” Reid, Private William Edward Shephard, Nursing Sister Mary W. MacNutt, Lieutenant Commander Robert Cunningham MacMillan, Captain Frederick Peters, and Squadron Leader Hugh Charles “Charlie” Trainor. More veterans will be featured in the years to come.

“The Prince Edward Island Regiment Museum is pleased to partner with the City of Charlottetown and T3 Transit to share stories about Island veterans,” said Lieutenant-Colonel Glenn Moriarity, Museum Director. The Museum, located in the Lieutenant-Colonel J. David Stewart, DSO, ED, CD Armoury in downtown Charlottetown is the only official Canadian Armed Forces Museum on Prince Edward Island.

The posters will remain in place until Monday, Nov. 13 and can be viewed at the following bus shelter locations: 171 Great George St. (The Atlantic Technology Centre), Boulder Park, the Confederation Centre, Buchanan Drive, and North River Road at Belvedere Avenue.
