This is the best image I’ve seen to mark the 100th Anniversary of the battle of Vimy Ridge today. Well worth noting.
These boots adorned with poppies at the Canadian National Memorial in northern France represent the 3,598 Canadians who died at Vimy Ridge 100 years ago. • A ceremony to mark the centennial was held at the memorial Sunday. As many as 25,000 people came to honour the Canadians who died in the fighting. • The battle marked the first time all four Canadian divisions fought together side-by-side during the First World War. • Earlier British and French attacks had failed to budge the defenders at the Ridge. • Photo by CBC’s Thomas Daigle | #cbcnews #vimy100 #canadians #vimyridge #anniversary #france #wwi
