Vimy Ridge

Today, April 8 being the hundredth anniversary of the beginning of the battle of Vimy Ridge, is a good time to post a photo of Grandpa Nevard. I never paid enough attention or bothered to get the details from him but family history has it that he was in the battle. He enjoyed talking of his war time experiences but at the time I just was not that interested and can remember only a few details. He used to point out this photo and comment that he was the only one in the photo that survived WWI.
I wonder if he knew or met these "Boys from Balcarres"? The video should be interesting when it comes online soon. Boys From Balcarres

Grandpa is far right in the back row.
