Commemoration of the 30th anniversary of the Liberation of Italy

Subseries consists of photographs, correspondence, publications, newspaper clippings and maps relating to the celebrations for the 30th anniversary of the Liberation of Italy.

In 1975, two members from each Canadian unit who participated in the Italian campaign during World War II were invited to take part in a official Canadian pilgrimage to places around Italy where veterans would tour former battle sites, war graves, towns and cities. In the case of the Cape Breton Highlanders, Charles "Sharkey" MacDonald and Ralph S. Davies were selected to represent the Highlanders.

Bay News

Alex Morrison and Ted Slaney: "The Bay News, the newspaper of the Cape Breton Highlanders, began weekly publication with its first edition hitting the streets on 25 August (1945). It was intended to be a self-supporting venture but the staff was assured that any losses would be covered. Its last edition was on 24 November (1945)."
