    This site has been created by Library and Archives Canada (LAC), in partnership with Veterans Affairs Canada (VAC) and the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC). It is based on the CBC's radio broadcast In Flanders Fields, a series of interviews with veterans of the Canadian Expeditionary Force, which aired from November 11, 1964 to March 7, 1965. It provides free access to a collection of audio interviews with Canadian First World War servicemen. Topics covered include life in the trenches, the Battle of the Somme, Ypres and personal experiences of war. Transcripts are provided. The site also contains suggestions for further Internet research, technical and copyright information.
