A special thank you goes to Kay Mansfield and her family for the donation of the restored picture of “The Bruce in Khaki, the 160th Battalion”. It is fitting to have this picture hanging in the Legion in Remembrance of the veterans of World War I. Many of the men in this picture were the first executive and branch members of the Lion’s Head Legion. The late Comrade, Rev. Robert Mansfield is remembered for his twenty years service as chaplain to the Legion.
