Remembering Vimy Ridge 100 Years Later

As part of the Vimy 100 commemorations happening across the country and around the world, Fort Rodd Hill and Fisgard Lighthouse, hosted an evening of military training exercises, period uniforms and live music.

The evening ended with a powerful commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the battle of Vimy Ridge.  6 C3 105 – mm Howitzers were stationed on the beach below, and fired off 100 rounds.  One for each year since the first shots were fired in 1917.

It was windy, the rain came and went, it was cold but that didn’t keep thousands from coming out to remember those that fought.
