Battle of Vimy Ridge diorama donated to 8th Hussars Museum
A New Brunswick man, Nick Dunning , who creates realistic dioramas of military battle scenes out of his home calls it a passion and a duty and he has now donated a piece in honour of the 100th anniversary of the Battle of Vimy Ridge to the 8th Hussars Museum. Each piece of work Dunning creates has its start in his basement, which he calls “the bunker.” Dunning spends hours combining his passion for military history and his artistic eye for detail to recreate battles from the First and Second World Wars.
In 1968 / 1969 Nick wore the black beret as a reservist
with the 8th Canadian Hussars in Moncton at No. # 5 depot.
We are very proud to have the addition of this diorama to our 2017 exhibits at the 8th Hussars Museum as we commemorate the 100th anniversary of the battle.
