    Devils Brigade Display by PEIR Museum

    A new display of the men of PEI in the First Special Service Force was unveiled today at the Queen Charlotte Armouries in Charlottetown.  Family members of those who served did the honours before a crowd of about 150.

    There were nine Islanders who were original members, plus eight who joined as replacements.

    Here are some pictures I took at the ceremony.

    Capt. Greg Gallant, Museum Curator with the new display:

    Nice PEILH tunic in the last image. It looks like someone on the museum staff actually knows what they are doing. A nice display.
