It would be nice to use that picture on our Canadian site for the 116th Infantry Battalion (9th Infantry Brigade, 3rd Canadian Division).

Having replaced the 60th Battalion after they were decimated, the 116th does have a special place in Canadian History.

Here is what we currently have on the 116th on the Matrix:

116th Canadian Infantry Battalion: CEFSG Matrix Project

We never use anything without asking.

A great set of pics, many thanks for sharing. Places I have not seen before. The one of Riqueval Bridge shows those on it almost as ghosts, very evocative.

I agree - great photos, and I too was struck by the one of Riqueval bridge as I scrolled through. Having seen many times the one where the troops are being addressed from the bridge parapet and it's on my list of 'must see' places. Many thanks!

The St Quentin canal at Riqueval (bridge, Bellicourt tunnel) really is a must see and not just for the Great War connection. It is an extraordinary work, dug in Napoleonic times.

Thank you every one for your kind comments - I always try to share my photos as I know there are many who cannot make the journey & I hope this brings these places to life - got a 100 odd grave shots as well if anyone is interested

Great photos Chris - brought back happy memories of visiting the area - especially Riqueval - with Dad (now long gone) while researching Grandad's war service - Thanks!

Wonderful, evocative stuff, thankyou. And agree about Montbrehain, such a sad place.....was there a month ago, and followed the Australian attack around both flanks, and then couldn't help it, but wept in the cemetery for the last of the boys of the AIF.......

Excellent photo's. Like others I was immediately struck by the 'ghosts' on the Riqueval Bridge.

Thanks.
