The memorial commemorates the actions of the 15th Battalion CEF, which was on the extreme left flank of the Canadian assault on Hill 70, on 15 August 1917 and the memory of those members of the Battalion who fell during the engagement. The memorial sits on what was then known as Bois Hugo, which the Battalion assaulted, captured and held against repeated German counterattacks."
