Battle for Vimy Ridge

A headlining article concerning the First Day of the Battle for Vimy Ridge – over 2,000 hit, with a ratio of 1 dead to 5 wounded for Canadian soldiers. This report specifically takes care to mention that each body is given an individual burial by those men in their units, over which a wooden cross with his name, rank and identification number is placed. An army chaplain is present to permit reverence of those lost in battle.
