Memory Mug Up: Bell Island

SPSNL is helping organize an event for sharing stories about the U-boat attacks and sinkings at Bell Island in 1942. It is happening at the Bell Island Community Museum on Friday, July 20.


Bell Island Shipwreck Exhibit

SPSNL is partnering with the Bell Island Heritage Society to create a new online museum exhibit on the Bell Island Shipwrecks.
