“Men of Vimy”
“They were the men of the Canadian Veterans’ Guards. Old soldiers who had not faded away but who have returned to serve with their sons.”
An appropriate video considering the 98th anniversary of Vimy Ridge on April 9. The Canadian Army Newsreels series was produced by the Canadian Army Film Unit during the war with the intention of showcasing the Canadian war effort to those back home. Albeit brief, the video shows some footage of the General Duty Company of the Veterans’ Guard of Canada, attached to the Canadian Military Headquarters in London, England.
