Happy Canada Day to everyone and a special thought to Newfounlanders who are also officially remembering, sadly, the virtual annihilation of the Newfoundland Regiment 99 years ago at Beaumont Hamel during the battle of the Somme.

I had forgotten that this occurred on 1 July and that is why it's called Memorial Day in Newfoundland & Labrador; shame on me.  I believe the Regiment suffered an 80% casualty rate during the assault, with all its officers killed.  Prior to that the Regiment had fought in Gallipoli, another fiasco for the British and Anzacs.
