Mont St Eloi is a village in the Department of the Pas-de-Calais, 8 kilometres north-west of Arras. The village stands on high ground overlooking the battlefields of Vimy and Souchez and the main Bethune-Arras road, and the ruined towers that rise from it were used as an observation post during the French attacks at Neuville-St Vaast and Givenchy in May 1915. Ecoivres is a hamlet lying at the foot of the hill, to the south-west and about 1.5 kilometres from Mont St Eloi on the Arras-St Pol line. The ECOIVRES MILITARY CEMETERY is on the D49 road.

  • Medals– The collection of medals and memorial attributed to Lieut. Charles Pearman Steer. Pictured are the British War and Victory Medals, Canadian Memorial Cross and Memorial Plaque. Sadly there are two service medals lost from the group: Queens South Africa Medal (for service in the Boer War 1899-1902) and the 1914-15 Star. Remarkably the donor of this collection united all of the above seen pieces over a span of fifteen years. Lieut. Steer was killed by shell fire while supervising wiring parties on Vimy Ridge.
