The Canmore Museum needs your help to solve some of the mysteries in our collections. Every week we will post about a new object or photo on Facebook and Instagram using the hashtag #MysteryMondays.

We have this beautiful Canadian Women’s Army Corp great coat but no details about who might have owned it or worn it. We do know that longtime Canmore resident May Riva was in the Canadian Women’s Army Corps in 1942, so it could be hers. If you know of any female family members from the area who were in the Canadian Women’s Army Corp, it would be great to attach the rightful name to this beautiful coat and add what must be an interesting story!
