Vimy Ridge

Our last day saw us at Vimy Ridge Memorial

We visited the memorial to the sixty thousand Canadian troops that died during the Great War.  We also visited the small museum and looked at some of the trenches that have been recreated on the site of the battle.  The attack on Vimy Ridge left nearly 10,000 Canadian and 20,000 German troops killed or wounded.  It was a sobering experience for all of us.
