Professor Douglas Delaney delivers 2016 Ross Ellis Memorial Lecture

On October 26, 2016, CMSS held its 18th annual ross Ellis Lecture in Military and Strategic Studies. Co-hosted by the Calgary Highlanders, this year’s lecture was presented by Dr. Douglas Delaney of the Royal Military College and was held at Mewata Armoury. Dr. Delaney spoke on Capturing Hill 70: Canada's Forgotten Battle of the First World War. The lecture was preceded by a special display by the Calgary Highlanders Drum and Pipe Corps and the annual Battle of Walcheren Causeway remembrance parade. We are very gratified and honoured that Leslie Ellis, Colonel Ross Ellis’ daughter once again attended the lecture, travelling all the way from Vancouver Island to join us.
