The Old Front Line Tour 2012 - Day Four

Back at Vimy Ridge we were treated to a guided tour by Michelle from Vancouver.
She took us firstly through the concrete preserved trenches and then through a short section of the Grange Tunnels.
It's a great story that the Canadian Students have learnt to tell, you may call me an old whinger but weren't the tunnels dug by British Royal Engineers and weren't the infantry supported by British Artillery and most importantly, wasn't the Vimy assault just part of the Battle of Arras?
Cracking tour all the same.
