In The Footsteps of Vimy

To mark the centennial of the Battle of Vimy Ridge that was fought on a chilly Easter Monday morning in 1917, the RCA Museum will feature a temporary exhibit called In the Footsteps of Vimy from April 7 to November 30, 2017.

New tactics for the artillery, intense training for every soldier and coordination from the lowest ranks to the highest positions at Head Quarters were honed behind the lines and in the forward trenches. The successful taking of Vimy by Canadians is considered Canada’s entry into the world as a mature sovereign nation.
