EDITORS COMMENTS
This evocative print captures the bravery and determination of the Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry (PPCLI) during the Battle of Frezenberg-Ypres, which took place on May 8, 1915. The scene depicts the soldiers of the PPCLI, then part of the 80th Brigade, 27th Division, British Expeditionary Force (BEF), as they prepared to attack the German lines at Bellewaerde Ridge. At the time of this engagement, the Stonewall Brigade, under the command of General Snow, was making its mark in the First World War. The Canadians, known for their tenacity and resilience, were about to launch a fierce assault against the enemy trenches, marking one of the earliest major actions by Canadian troops during the conflict. The original painting, titled "The Canadians at Ypres," is a poignant reminder of the sacrifices made by these brave men during the Great War. It is currently housed in the PPCLI Regimental Museum at the Museum of the Regiments in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. The image offers a glimpse into the harsh realities of trench warfare, with soldiers clad in heavy uniforms and armed with rifles, preparing to charge into the unknown. This powerful image not only serves as a testament to the heroism of the Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry but also holds historical significance as a crucial moment in the annals of Canadian military history. The Battle of Frezenberg-Ypres marked the beginning of a series of engagements that would establish the Canadian Corps as a formidable fighting force on the Western Front.
