Vimy Ridge Soldier Buried After 90 Years.

Posted on Saturday, March 31 at 15:52 by drcaleb
Peterson was a member of the Canadian 49th Battalion, the predecessor unit of the Loyal Edmonton Regiment. On April 7, the group of soldiers who practised the burial drill will finally lay Peterson to rest in the La Chaudiere Military Cemetery, near Vimy Ridge in northern France. “It will be a full and proper military burial,” said Capt. Malcolm Day, a spokesman for Alberta’s army reserve units. “The remains of thousands of soldiers who fell in the battles of the First World War were never recovered, so this will be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to pay our respects to a fallen comrade.”
