Expansion of The Royal Canadian Regiment museum

The London Free Press reported on 13 May 2007 under the title "We must preserve our heritage" that the regimental museum of The Royal Canadian Regiment - located in Wolseley Barracks, in London, Ontario - has begun a campaign to expand its facilities. The "Building For The Future" campaign is attempting to raise $2.3 million in the next year or so and the Ontario provincial government has already granted $240,000 towards that goal. The proposed expansion would add approximately 6,000 square feet to the museum, providing additional display space, a new entrance and a "current campaigns" exhibit, the latter including material from the ongoing conflict in Afghanistan.
