Royal Newfoundland Regiment Colourized Photo

Colourizing the Past

MUN alumnus Gerard Nash shared his work in remembering the Royal Newfoundland Regiment:

"I have been restoring and colorizing photos of the Royal Newfoundland Regiment and sharing them on my Facebook page and numerous WW1 groups. My pictures have now been seen by tens of thousands and some have been published in the Telegram, and in the Michael Wert documentary "When the Boys Came Home." I have also been contacted by CBC to do a piece for Here and Now and to possibly include my pictures in the documentary "Trail of The Caribou", airing on July 1st, 2016."

PoppiesTammy Hynes-Brown shared the following comments on her commemorative art:

"I am a current Memorial Students (M.Ed program) and an alum (BA '94, B.Ed '08) I am currently the Principal of a Roman Catholic Elementary School in the Hollywood area of Los Angeles. In my spare time I paint (I also teach are to grades 5-8 here at Our Mother of Good Counsel School). This past November I experimented with mixed media painting, acrylic, watercolor and tissue paper. The result is attached. It is a tribute to WWI and the poppies that we all wear in November in Canada and the UK to mark the remembrance."
