    Beautiful work.
    I'd point out the Vimy and all other memorial events, are "comemorations" for those involved with those events. There is nothing to "celebrate" about war....

    In Canada , it is considered a celebration and a commemoration. Vimy is seen as Canada's coming of age so it is poignant mark in our nations history. The battle of Vimy ridge holds a different meaning in different countries.

    Just an FYI, I will be attending the Vimy memorial and a friend also attending found this and told me, as I don't know that I would have found it myself, you must register to attend the Vimy event by February 28th or be denied access, so visit http://www.veterans.gc.ca/eng/rememb...00-anniversary
    if you're planning to be there.
