Remembering The Halifax Explosion - One Day Late
David Crook and Bob Cordery both posted about the anniversary of Pearl Harbour today, which reminded me that the 6th was the anniversary of the 1917 Halifax Explosion (see the links to wikipedia and CBC). Halifax is my home town growing up and as i child I was fascinated by the story. My grandmother was a high school student at the time and her school was in the heart of downtown Halifax and had many tales of the events of the day.
