From the cemetery we traveled to a few other significant areas. First up was Authie a small village where a number of Canadian soldiers were killed and their bodies left in the street. A local doctor attempted to provide assistance to some of the soldiers , but he too was killed.
Next up was an area called Hells Corners. Canadian Soldiers were held up here for a month by German forces before they could make any advance.
From here we went to The Ardenne Abbey. Where a number of Canadian prisoners were brought here and executed on July 7th and 8th.
Thanks for sharing your journey and in turn, some of the journeys of our country’s brave soldiers.
mon plaisir. My limited French seems to be getting me by.
