I also failed to mention the centennial Tattoo/Pageant of 1967 that
included Canadian soldiers dressed in reproduced WW1 uniforms "recreating"
an over the top attack.
1967 was also the year that the "BATTLE OF THE THAMES" (Warof 1812) was
presented at Chatham Ontario.
It was part of the city's Centennial Project (1967 was Canada's Centennial.
The Canadian Army Reserve wore red coated uniforms and the local black
powder club portrayed the American Forces. The Natives were from the three
Indian Reserves in the area.
It was repeated three years later in 1970.
