From Rinks to Regiments: Author Talk with Alan MacLeod

Unbeknownst to many, 30 players, 1 referee, and 1 builder now enshrined in the Hockey Hall of Fame were also soldiers in the Great War. Four of these men were killed in action. Four were decorated for gallantry. 27 were volunteers, and 5 were were conscripted under the Military Service Act of 1917. All have remarkable stories. “From Rinks to Regiments” resurrects the memories of these national heroes and celebrates their contributions on both the ice and the frontlines.

Free event, all welcome.
