Vimy April 2017 Commemoration Tour with 200 Canadian Gunners and Signallers: Behind the Scenes

The town of Thelus is preparing for the crowd that will descend upon them in April 2017 during commemorative events for Vimy 100th.  There will be a rededication of the artillery monument built by the Canadian Artillery Corps.  The monument, erected in April 1918 and unveiled by General Sir Julian Byng, is getting some much needed care and attention in order to rededicate it to the Canadian Field Artillery along with the British and South African Gunners who served with them. We were very impressed in December 2016 with the mayor and his administration as they collaborated with us about the town's plans, all ready underway for this huge gathering.
