The Battle of Vimy Ridge represents a coming of age for Canada, the first time that all four divisions of the Canadian Corps had fought together, and under Canadian commanders.
Vimy Ridge has become a potent symbol of Canadian identity and nationalism, though at the painful cost of over 10,000 casualties; 3,598 were killed and 7,004 wounded.
Every year, on April 9th, Canadians commemorate the victory of the Canadian Corps at Vimy Ridge in France. The engagement, part of the larger Battle of Arras (April 9 to May 16, 1917), took place from April 9 to 12, and resulted in the decisive defeat of the German defenders.

When the Battle of Arras began on April 9, 1917 the Royal Flying Corps (RFC) deployed 25 squadrons with a combined 385 aircraft; only about a third of these aircraft were fighters (known as scouts at the time). For the men of the RFC and the Royal Naval Air Service (RNAS) – and there were many Canadians among them – this was the start of what would be called, “Bloody April”. The savagery of the fighting and the bravery of the combatants on the ground were matched by the war in the air.
For the Royal Canadian Air Force, the war in which this battle was fought represents the naissance of Canadian military aviation, which made vital contributions to the conduct of the ground engagement.
The men and women of today’s air force are the proud successors of the Canadian airmen who served as members of the Royal Flying Corps during the Battle of Vimy Ridge. Those gallant airmen played a pivotal role in the birth of Canadian military aviation and the Royal Canadian Air Force.
The Vimy Flight Association and the RCAF conducted flying activities in Northern France with four Nieuport 11 and one SE5 replica aircraft throughout week, leading up to the 100-year anniversary ceremonies of the Battle of Vimy Ridge on 9 April, 2017.

Vimy a constitué une étape déterminante dans l’évolution du Canada, c’était la première fois que les quatre divisions du Corps canadien combattaient ensemble et le faisaient sous les ordres de commandants canadiens.

La bataille de la crête de Vimy est devenue un symbole puissant de l’identité et du nationalisme canadiens, mais a fait plus de 10 000 victimes (3 598 morts et 7 004 blessés).
Tous les ans, le 9 avril, la population canadienne commémore la victoire du Corps canadien à la crête de Vimy, en France. L’ affrontement, qui s’est déroulé pendant la grande bataille d’Arras (du 9 avril au 16 mai 1917), a eu lieu du 9 au 12 avril et a entraîné la défaite décisive des forces de défense allemandes

Au début de la bataille d’Arras, le 9 avril 1917, le Royal Flying Corps (RFC) a déployé 25 escadrons comptant 385 aéronefs. Pour les militaires du RFC et du Royal Naval Air Service (RNAS), dont les rangs comptaient de nombreux Canadiens, c’était le début de ce qui s’appellerait l’« avril sanglant ». Toutefois, la sauvagerie des combats et la bravoure des combattants au sol avaient leurs égales dans les airs.

Les hommes et les femmes de l’Aviation royale canadienne (ARC) d’aujourd’hui sont les fiers successeurs des aviateurs canadiens qui ont servi au sein du Royal Flying Corps pendant la bataille de la crête de Vimy. Ces vaillants aviateurs ont joué un rôle essentiel dans l’avènement de l’aviation militaire canadienne et de l’Aviation royale canadienne.
La Vimy Flight Association (VFA) et l’ARC a fait des activités aériennes dans le nord de la France à bord de quatre aéronefs inspirés du Nieuport 11 et d’un aéronef inspiré du SE5 pendant cette semaine précédant les cérémonies du centenaire de la bataille de la crête de Vimy, le 9 avril 2017.

Vimy 100th Anniversary
To mark the 100th anniversary of the First World War and the Battle of Vimy Ridge on April 9, 2017, commemorative events were held at the Canadian National Vimy Memorial in France.
Approximately 300 Canadian Armed Forces members took part of the event.
The guard participating in events in France is comprised of 58 units that fought at the Battle of Vimy Ridge or are promulgated from units that fought in the battle. These members come from across Canada and were chosen based on their units, merit and family connection to the battle.
In this photo a member of the Canadian contingent participates in a Sunset Ceremony at the Canadian National Vimy Memorial in Vimy, France on April 8, 2017.
