Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - April 20, 1916, Lethbridge, Alberta Volume ix. LETHBRIDGE, ALBERTA. SATURDAY. Al'RlL 22, 191(5 NUMBER 112 COMMEMORATING CANADA'S GLORY Cunadii today, by ordcr-in-coundl, is commemorating the Second Battle of Ypres, which began a year ago today, and lasted for three days. Of this battle the bright particular piece of work was Ihe charge of the 10th Rattalion of Alberta, the Fighting Tenth on the wood of St. .lulien which was held by the Germans, four or live times the strength of the attacking force. The charge took place after darkness fell, led by Col. Boyle, who fell in the charge. Behind that wood were four �1.7 inch British guns which had been loaned to the French and which had been lost when the French retired. The job on hand was to retake them. Supported by the KUb, (he Fighting Tenth charged over .500 yards of ground, took the German trench at the point of the bayonet and tken on through the woods, under a hail of German fird" which sadly (binned the ranks of the tenth. But they were not to be denied. The Huns made u strong stajid round the guns, where the famous Prussian Guard was holding the line. The guns were taken, the gap in the British lines was filled. As General Alderson wrote, "The Canadians saved the situation." LETHBRIDGE'S HONOR ROLL L'asitfllUf.'s siiicn llii; licKinning of Tlio following iiro tlio LethhridKe tilt! wiir; KILLED Capt.

The charge of (he l'"igh(ing Tenth is of particular interest to Lethbridge people, for many of the lirst boys who went from here were with the Fighting Tenth. In fact (he Lethbridge boys supplied the machine gun section of the Battalion. It is also of particular interest because it is believed that Pte. "Billy" Car-niil of (hie city was the first man to fall in that memorable charge. Twenty-two out of 2.5 officers went down before . the guns were taken, and about 80 per cent, of the' m^n in the charge were killed or wounded. But the task in hand was done I'.s only veterans could do it, the name of (he Canadian soldier became famous, and that is why, today, wc are celebrating St. .lulien Day from one end of Canada to the other. -ijeorge is sed Liquid Fire Against French Lines But Without Result-French Report Some Prisoners Taken Assailed as Trouble-maker London, April 22.-Displeaanro cx- yotirsc'lC a man of destiny.
