The Waterloo at War website is an online portal to the past. There you will find archival records, photographs, and written documents pertaining to Waterloo County, Ontario and the 118th Overseas Battalion, one of the local units raised during the First World War.
The website is a collaborative effort between the Mennonite Archive of Ontario, University of Waterloo’s Library, LCMSDS, and various community members who have been kind enough to donate their personal material to complement Waterloo at War.
At present, the information on this website largely derives from the Lt. Col. W. Lochead Fonds which is held by LCMSDS. The material was digitized and this website created through a partnership with the Department of History, the Faculty of Arts, and LCMSDS with funding from the Wilfrid Laurier University Special Initiatives Fund. Over the next three years we plan to add newspapers, letters, diaries, and other documents to the collection. Check out the Website by clicking the image tab below!
