Ted Glenn has written a history of the Canadian Cycling Corp in the Great War. He will be giving a presentation at Lambton House on May 9. Come and hear stories like the battle of the Humber in 1916, about how they trained in Toronto and their fate in Western Europe. It is an interesting and little known history.
