Canadian WW1 Battlefield Tour 2016: Vimy Ridge, France and Belgium

 

The Battle of the Somme – 1916 • The Battle of Arras – 1917 • The Ypres Salient – 1915 – 1917

At 10.58 hours in the Belgian village of Ville-sur-Haine on November 11, 918 a single 7.92mm round fired by a German soldier hit Private George Lawrence Price of "A" Company, 28th Battalion, Canadian Expeditionary Force. Price died instantly.

Two minutes later at 11.00 hours the First World War ended. With his death Price would become the last soldier of the British Empire to be killed in the war. By then, Canada had lost 66,975 through enemy action. Canadian troops and the men of Newfoundland had fought with courage and distinction in World War I winning 71 Victoria Crosses. Our tour pays tribute to their sacrifice and bravery and takes you to the key battlegrounds of war including Ypres and Vimy Ridge. Come with Spirit of Remembrance to France and Belgium and walk over land that through courage and sacrifice has become a part of Canada.
