The Royal Canadian Legion Regina branch has unveiled a mural to honour members of the Princess Patricia’s Canadian Light Infantry, and CFB Shilo.
The mural is in the museum portion of the legion in the south portion of the building.
Curator of the Regina branch Ron Hitchcock said the mural specifically honours veterans of the Afghanistan conflict.
“The war was Canada’s longest war and we thought that they should be honoured,” Hitchcock said. “We happen to have some faces that we know, and we have permission to portray and we have an artist that’s a portrait artist that did a marvelous job of showing the way they came home.”
Mural aritist Mary-Ann Dube said she hopes people are able to depict what the veterans lives would be like today.
“Like little peeks into the action, little peeks into what they do, and afterwards to see how they come home, and to see the peace side and be so glad that we’re here, and that it’s peaceful.”
The mural can be viewed on Thursdays from four until eight PM, as well as a special viewing Saturday.
