Welcome to the COBWFA Website
We are the Central Ontario Branch of the Western Front Association. The purpose of the Western Front Association is to perpetuate the memory, courage and comradeship of those, of both sides, who served their country in France and Flanders (Belgium) during the Great War. The WFA has about 6,000 members worldwide with branches in the United Kingdom, Australia, Canada, France, Germany, and the United States. Memberships are great gifts any time - see "Join Us" item on the left.
