(click on photos to enlarge)
For the Canadian soldiers courage, creativity, sacrifice and success at Vimy Ridge, when other had failed, a unifying proud historical event for Canada in WWI. France so appreciated Canada's contribution to the liberation of northern France the battlefield was made Canadian Territory as a gift from France.
It is a moment of pride to see the Canadian flag flying along side the French drapeau.
The memorial is truly monumental, standing tall and alone upon the ridge, visible for miles around.
