The sudden death of Norma Chamberlain [1927-2017] on Friday, May 26th comes as a shock. Norma had a firm grip on what it means to remember our military heritage and the importance of service to our community. The wife of the late Lt. Col. Robert Chamberlain, a founding member and former Chairman of the Elgin Military Museum, she made a significant contribution to the evolution of the museum in her own right. For Ian, Melissa and myself (Catherine), she and ‘Bomber’ were always a part of our lives and will continue to be in our memories.
The Elgin Military Museum has a vast collection of letters, articles, poems and pictures of veterans and others who served their community over a period of two hundred years.. This blog is our way of sharing them with you.
