Remember Beaumont-Hamel

Take a minute on Canada Day, to recall that a century ago, 1 July 1916, Newfoundland saw the disaster that befell the Newfoundland Regiment at Beaumont-Hamel.

There is a commemoration organized by The Rooms in St John's.

The Canadian War Museum has an exhibit - Traces of the First World War - Newfoundland and Labrador, with a special display of historical photos, entitled: July 1, 1916 – The Somme and Beaumont-Hamel, until July 20, 2016.

CBC has scheduled broadcast of Newfoundland at Armageddon at 8 p m on Thursday 30 June. See the associated website here.

Thank you for posting this. It is good to know that someone in Ottawa remembers - the local newspapers certainly do not. "I will Sing You Home" will be with me all day.
