is what is was to be standing on that Ridge in the footsteps of our forefathers. A must for any Canadian. We took two of our children through the Sommes, up into Belgium and of course Vimy along the war memorials to teach them about their heritage and the sacrifices made so they could have the life they are living today.
The momument itself is breathtaking and words can not begin to describe the feeling I had standing there, watching my 12 year old daughter run her hands over soldiers names and read stories on plaquards left by loved ones.
The tunnels and trenches are also a good exhibit and the staff of young Canadians are both enthusiastic and informative. Walking along the craters left by shelling is mind blowing, and you can only imagine what it was like for our soldiers.
I highly recommend both this site and the memorial to the Newfoundland Regiment just outside of Arras. Both are exceptional monuments honouring our fallen.
