The Fall issue of The Maple Leaf is out this Saturday. Pick up your copy at our September meeting or look for it in the mail soon.
This issue’s cover story features an article by member Rod Henderson on the CEF’s war photographers and includes a generous sampling of their work, which includes some of the most iconic photos of the war. The work was also the subject of public exhibits in England and Canada that drew an audience of people fascinated by real scenes of the conflict.
Michel Gravel reports on the naming of the Arras-Cambrai Road in honour of the Canadians who fought their way along it in the 100 Days campaign, winning 7 VCs. “La Voie Sacrée de Canada” was dedicated in August and Michel was there.
