The Lethbridge Military Museum is commemorating the 75th Anniversary of the Liberation of the Netherlands.

A recently installed temporary display is now open to the public after an official ribbon cutting was held Tuesday at the Vimy Ridge Armoury.

Former MP, Honorary Lieutenant Colonel Rick Casson, says Canada played a significant role in the Liberation of Holland.

The local military museum is also highlighting its courtyard renovations which has allowed some artifacts to be relocated for direct public access at the entrance of the facility.
