Vimy Ridge Memorial

Vimy Ridge is the Canadian war memorial built on the site of the battle for Vimy Ridge in 1917.  A terrible number of Allied and German soldiers lost their lives with over the Canadian losses numbering over 10,000.  The huge art deco style monument with its thousands of names engraved into the stone blocks made the children think hard about brief history talk that Mr Samuel gave them on the coach.
