Canada Day 1918

Tinques, France, July 1st, 1918

July 1st, 1918 – With the threat of the German offensives beaten off, the Canadian Corps came together in massive numbers to celebrate Dominion Day and the Corps Championships at Tinques France. Dignitaries from far and wide visited. It was to be a last carefree day in the sun when war, for a day, seemed far off. Five weeks later the Corps would spearhead the surprise Allied attack at Amiens together with the Australian Corps.

Happy Canada Day 2018!
