Somme 1916 Markers


On May 30th, the Governor General’s Horse Guards dedicated new markers in the town of Courcelette to commemorate the battle honours of Somme 1916, Pozieres, Flers-Courcelette and Ancre Heights, all costly battles for the 3rd Battalion and the 4th Canadian Mounted Rifles, which the GGHG also perpetuate.

Costs for the memorials are shared between the QOR, the GGHG and the Royal Regiment of Canada.
