Prince George, B.C. – At 5:30 am, on April 9th  1917,  the battle to take Vimy Ridge began,  and it was a battle that would  be considered a defining moment for Canadians.

Legion Magazine has produced  the video  to commemorate the 100th anniversary of this  battle and we have embedded  it  for  your viewing.

 

Editor’s Note:

While 250News is aware  the narrator  erred in  pronouncing the  word Lieutenant,  instead of the Canadian  pronunciation (lef-tenant)  that should not, in any way,  diminish  the magnitude of this  important  chapter in Canadian history.  We hope you  take  a few minutes to  watch and to pay respect to those who fought,  and those who fell.
