Vimy Ridge, April 9, 1917 – Easter Monday

My grandfather, Beverley Scott, was part of the McGill Battery, Siege Artillery in the latter half of the Great War. He was at Vimy Ridge, and these are two pages from his diary. Click on the pictures to bring up a readable, full-size image.

The #7 (McGill) Siege Battery, in the Artillery of the Canadian Expeditionary Force (CEF) was formed April 25, 1916 16 from graduates and undergraduates of McGill University; Bev Scott was one of the latter.
