Memorials

Follow in their Footsteps: Canada’s Hundred Days

After the First World War, four battlefield memorials were built in France and Belgium to commemorate Canada and Newfoundland’s accomplishments, contributions and sacrifices during the Last Hundred Days.

As memorials to the missing, the Canadian National Vimy Memorial and the Beaumont-Hamel Newfoundland Memorial include the names of those who fell during this period with no known grave.
