WFA – Pacific Coast Branch
The Pacific Coast Branch (PCB) was established in 1999. Headquartered in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada, the PCB was created as a cross-border WFA branch and has members from the Canadian Provinces of British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Ontario and the American States of Washington, Oregon, California, Virginia and Florida.
Our membership consists of over 100 well-informed men and women who strive to remember, honour and learn from the sacrifices made by those who served and endured the cataclysm of the First World War. Many members are experienced researchers, presenters and published authors. Youth membership is encouraged to create awareness of the relevance of the Great War.
Members’ interests and activities include researching military, family or social history; studying battles and campaigns; assisting in the identification of military graves and maintaining war memorials; visiting battlefield sites; and making presentations to civic and school groups.
The Western Front Association (WFA) was established in 1980 to educate the public and maintain an interest in the history of the Great War of 1914-1919 with particular reference to the Western Front.There are more than 60 WFA branches in Europe, North America, Australia and New Zealand with a combined membership of over 6,000.
The WFA is non-political and does not seek to glorify war, nor is it a re-enactment society. Its principal objective is to perpetuate the memory, courage and comradeship of the people on all sides who served their countries during the Great War in and over France and Belgium, on other fronts, at sea and in their own countries. Another important objective is to inform and educate the public on the continuing relevance the Great War has on the modern world.
