Good evening gentlemen,
I am a bit of a stalemate in my research and was hoping that you may be of
some assistance. I‘m researching a WW1, RCR battle honor, Hindenburg Line.
However, through numerous internet searches useless info or dead links I
have come up empty handed.
I was hoping someonemay have some relevant information I might use for a
presentation I have to show on the 7 March 00. Be it links to sites other
than British, Aussie or American, or text files, it would all be received
with open arms. Pictures for the audience‘s visual stimulation might also
come in handy. I appreciate all your help and/or direction in this little
predicament.
All I know of this event is that Hindenburg was a German general Paul von
Hindenburg for which a German stronghold, an entrenchment system, was named
after.

Try getting hold of the offical Canadian history of the Great War.
It is the "Canadian Expeditionary Force 1914-1919" by Col G.W.L.Nicholson.
It should answer your questions, failing that try getting the getting
Vol 1 "The Royal Canadian Regiment" by R.C.Fetherstonhaugh and G.R.Steves
published in 1936.
Both books might be had through the inter library load.
Or check out your local university.

Dear Mr. Davis,
Another source worth to be checked is Mrs Rose Coombss MBE book titled
Before endeavours fade . Republished by After the battle in 1994 from
the original in 1976, I think you could get a hand on it via this amazonic
site or directly from our British friends of ATB.
Sincerely,
Robert

Go to the RCR web page 2nd Bat they should be able to supply you with
all the info on the RCR,s WW1 OR go directly to their HQs at Wolsley
Barracks in London Ont.

Well...um, checked their web site, not a great deal of info there. But a
valid suggestion seeing as how it is one of their Battle Honors. As for
London, hopefully I get to Kitchener before Mar 7 In-laws are from there.
I suppose I should have mentioned I myself am RCR. Ha...oops. 3RCR in
Petawawa...for now LOTP in the works.... Thanks for the input all the same
though. Appreciate the help.
John Davis, Cpl
