It's an honour to stand at the memorial where so many Canadian soldiers are immortalized by this monument. The people in this area all know what the Canadian soldiers did, and to stand in this place, technically Canadian soil, is moving. It doesn't take long...More

This is a stand-alone memorial to Canadians and is worth a visit. Also known as the 'Brooding Soldier' it seems to convey very well the sadness of a soldier paying respects to fallen comrades.

The Brooding Soldier" memorial is simple and breathtaking. It stands 33 feet high and can seen in all directions from where it sits near the corner at a T-junction of two public roads. It was surreal and poignant during the visit to be aware of...More

Our second visit, as my late Father-in-law , Lt ,Col. Norman Bruce Ramsay won the MC in April 1915, three weeks after landing, and joining his regiment at St, Julian. If only for a week-end - one can see Ypres, take the road to Bruges...More

This is a monument that remembers those who fell to the first gas attack of WWI. Despite the knowledge of the horror of that day, we have yet to learn the lesson, it seems. 100 years later, and some still use gas attacks.

Worth going to see this monument. The monument is out of the way, but captures the atrocity of gas warfare tactics.

The memorial is dramatic in its design. However, very little information is available about the gas attack on the site. With the battle now over a century ago and few remaining visitors who met anyone involved in the battle. It is likely it will become...More

The memorial commemorates the Canadian First Division's participation in the Second Battle of Ypres of World War I which included fighting in the face of the first poison gas attacks along the Western Front. The German Army unleashed the gas attack on 22 April 1915....More
