My Heritage fair is about the first time in World War Two that Canadian infantry engaged in combat. This battle is often forgotten as it began on the same day as Pearl Harbor, although it had about the same amount of casualties and far worse conditions after the battle. This battle was known by many names such as the battle of Hong Kong, the fall of Hong Kong, and Black Christmas.
This project is important to Canada because it is an important part of our history that is often overlooked because of an important part of a different country’s History. Out of about two thousand Canadians about half of them never returned home.
