Labrador is a region of Atlantic Canada. Together with the island of Newfoundland from which it is separated by the Strait of Belle Isle, it constitutes the province of Newfoundland and Labrador. The region is part of the much larger Labrador Peninsula on the Canadian mainland. Newfoundland and Labrador became part of Canada in 1949, after having been a separate Dominion of the British Empire.
Labrador in Southern VictoryEdit
Throughout most of the Great War, Labrador was outside the range of the United States Army. The United Kingdom shipped supplies through Labrador after the mouth of the Saint Lawrence River fell under U.S. control. After the war, it along with the rest of Newfoundland was ceded to the United States.
During the Second Great War, the U.S. established weather stations in Labrador to improve forecasting in the North Atlantic. Britain did likewise with clandestine stations in isolated areas. Military garrisons guarding these stations frequently engaged in small skirmishes.
