The two links below are a very interesting read on Passchendaele and a note on Passchendaele 100 Years later.
This Remembrance Week marks 100 years since this important battle (26 October – 10 November 1917), the Vimy Foundation would like to ensure Remembrance events include a special mention of Passchendaele.
Branch 137 was honoured to be part of a video compilation of local WWI Veterans who died at Vimy Ridge.

Medric Cousineau and his dog, Thai, “Cous” and Thai visited Branch 137 on Friday 6 Sept 13. They and a few of the Branches members walked about town looking at historical sites. Cous spoke during the Branch lunch about his struggle with PTSD and how Thai has helped him since they came together last year. Check out the site at www.Pawsfurthought1.com. The picture below shows Cous, Thai, Bob Norrie, James Head and Chris Ingersoll as they begin the walk at the Napanee memorial cenetafe.
