30. Bourlon

Canadian Corps played an important role at Bourlon, delivering Cambrai sector from September to November 1918.

 

The Canadian memorial on the hill overlooking the village of Bourlon recalls the action of the Canadian Corps which, from September to November 1918, took Cambrai, Denain, Valenciennes and Mons, liberating as it advanced several hundred square kilometres of French soil. The memorial was erected on the actual site of the fighting in 1917 and 1918 and where the ancient lime trees still surviving bear to this day the marks of battle.
