Rev. Canon Major Frederick Scott (re-enacted by Nick Wells) became the padre of the 1st Canadian Corps in the Canadian Expeditionary Force and was tireless in ministering to the Corps both in and out of the trenches. He was joined on Thursday by a WWI nursing sister (re-enacted by Tracy Gordon).
Above Nick Wells as Rev. Canon Major Frederick Scott, Tracy Gordon as a WWI nursing sister and Mike Baker with Ellis Sifton display.
It was on the first day of the battle that Wallacetown native Ellis Sifton single-handedly eliminated a German machine gun emplacement at the cost of his own life. He was posthumously awarded a Victoria Cross, one of four presented to Canadians that day. His VC and information about him are also on display during the lecture.
