Shannyganock frontman Chris Andrews is looking for your family’s stories from the First World War and the battle of Beaumont-Hamel for a new song that he’s writing to commemorate the centennial anniversary.
CBC has asked Andrews to write a song to mark this important moment in our history.
To complete it, Andrews is looking for inspiration from the stories of families across Newfoundland and Labrador.
Was a relative of yours in the Royal Newfoundland Regiment, or perhaps a nurse who served overseas? What was life like here 100 years ago?
From now until March 7, send your stories to firstname.lastname@example.org.
