Photography After Vimy by Linda Finn

After Vimy

A screen print of a photo of the devastation after the battle of Vimy in 1917, a digital copy of a letter from William Herdman, and some empty WW1 cartridges describe the day the Canadians took the ridge. This victory came at a high cost as 3598 Canadians lost their lives, and 7000 were wounded. April 9, 1917 is still the bloodiest day in Canadian military history.
