The Loyal Edmonton Regiment Military Museum is operated as a non-profit foundation.  The museum does not charge for admission to our galleries or for most other services that we provide to the public.  The money needed to support our day-to-day operation is obtained by volunteers working our annual casino, by donations from the general public and by grants available to heritage organizations for specific projects.  With this in mind, we are pleased to acknowledge the receipt of a 2012 Community Investment Program Arts and Museum Building Operating grant.  Our thanks go out to the Edmonton Arts Council, the Edmonton Heritage Council and the City of Edmonton for their generous support.

Legend has it this infamous "War Stories Helmet" was passed around by veterans at mess dinners and reunions whereupon the wearer of the helmet would be required to share a story of dubious credibility. Undoubtedly aided by the influence of vino or similar beverages, the tales flowed of fantastical blunders, of soldiers single-handedly capturing scores of Germans prisoners, clearing entire towns mysteriously absent from maps and blowing up tanks from 200 yards.  True or not the stories were always comical and provided veterans with an opportunity to reflect on the more light-hearted moments of an otherwise traumatic and unpleasant period of their wartime past.

The helmet is now in the LERMM collection.
