Presentation Topic: The Skies Above:
Vimy Ridge and the Battle of Arras, 1917
by Major William March

   

Most Canadians are generally aware of the the Battle of Vimy Ridge (9-12 April 1917) as part of our history. It would be the first time that the four divisions of the Canadian Corps of the Canadian Expeditionary Force fought together as a single formation achieving a victory that had alluded allied armies up to that point. Less well known is the massive air campaign that accompanied the successful assault on the ridge. By that period of the war aviation had become a vital component of combat and value of the air arm in supporting the Canadian attack cannot be overstated. In a lively and informative presentation, Major Bill March will examine the various roles undertaken by Allied airmen, many of them Canadian, as they fought and died supporting their brethren on the ground.
