Thursday, November 24 at 7:30pm Myths and Realities of the Halifax Explosion

As we approach the hundredth anniversary of the disaster, it is high time to examine some of the fictional versions of what happened and change the narrative to celebrate truth. For example, Boston did not save Halifax on December 6, 1917…. Truro did! And New Glasgow and Kentville and many courageous railwaymen, firemen, sailors, local medical people and extraordinary citizens. Janet Maybee, Research Associate at the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic, will offer images and stories of real people invisible or wrongly blamed far too long.

    regarding the article about Janet Maybee’s book on the explosion, Is there a list of names of those who were on the train from Halifax that
    transported medical aid victims to Truro? My grandmother, Annie Casey ,later McCarron, was supposed to have been on that train , or a train that went to Truro . Any insight would be helpful.
    Thank you
