  • Canada's first major battle occurred between April 22nd - May 25th, 1915 in the town of Belgium, Ypres. The battle took place in Ypres, Salient where the German army was against the Brtish and two French Divisions.
  • The Germans released over 160 tonnes of poisonous gas. The British did not have gas masks to cover their face, so they had to use cloths soaked in urine to help them survive.
  • Yes, Sir!
  • We must take over the salient and destroy the whole area! Follow my commands as I tell you!
  • There were over  6,500 Canadian soldiers injured or hurt, and out of those 6,500, 2000 of them were dead because of the gas attack.

  • Norman Ross, a Canadian soldier wrote in his diary every day of what occurred during the time he was at war.
  • On April 24th Germans made it a goal to eliminate the Ypres Salient once and for all so that they can threaten the English channel ports.
  • On May 3rd, 1915,  Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae who was serving as a medic during the battle, had written the poem " In Flanders Fields' in the memory of his former friend/student; Alexis Helmer while sitting near his grave. Alexis died the day before John wrote his poem on May 2nd, 1915. 
  • I'm writing this poem letter in your memory, Alexis... I don't know if I should publish it or not. Perhaps I can give it to Sergeant-Major Cyril Allinson.
