“It is our duty…”

April 13, 2017

According to the Royal Household, on the 100th anniversary of the battle of Vimy Ridge, Queen Elizabeth II issued this message:

[On…] the 100th anniversary of the Battle of Vimy Ridge, there will be difficult memories of loss and of suffering, but also memories of many heroic acts of bravery and of sacrifice on the part of those who served.

…victory came at a heavy cost with more than 10,000 fallen and wounded.

I am pleased that my son The Prince of Wales, and my grandsons The Duke of Cambridge and Prince Harry, are attending the commemorations today.

It is our duty to remember and honour those who served so valiantly and who gave so much here at Vimy Ridge…
