A World War 1 centenial commemoration will be held at Forenville Military Cemetery, near Cambrai in Northern France where 100 mostly British soldiers are buried having been Killed in action on 8th October 1918. This memorial event lead by the local French people will take place on Sunday 7th October 2018. To the left flank of these men were battalions of Canadians.

In this same cemetery are the graves of 6 members of an RCAF 408 squadron Lancaster that crashed close to the cemetery on the night 12/13th June 1944, shot down by a night fighter while on a mission over Cambrai. The aircraft was DS726 EQ"Y" and you have details on this website.

I just wanted to assure you all that while the centenary event is obviously not for these men, that we will observe a fitting remembrance of them. Those men will NEVER be forgotten.
