April 7, 2015 – 98th Anniversary of the Battle of Vimy Ridge

I would like to join all Canadians in commemorating the 98th Anniversary of the Battle of Vimy Ridge.

Easter Monday, April 9, 1917, marked the beginning of the Battle of Vimy Ridge, with all four divisions of the Canadian Corps, fighting together for the first time.
