Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - April 22, 1916, Lethbridge, Alberta KOLUME IX. LETHBRIDGE, ALBERTA. SATIIIIDAY, APRIL 22. 191() NUMBER 112 COMMEMORATING CANADA'S GLORY Cunada today, by ordci--in-council, is commemorating the Second Battle of Yprcs, whlcii begun a year uko today, and lasted for three days. Of this battle the bright particular piece of work was the charge of the lOth Battalion 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 Kith, (he I'lghting Tenth charged over .500 yards of ground, took the German trench at the point of the bayonet and then on through the woods, under a hail of German fir^ which sadly thinned the ranks of the tenth. But they were not to be denied. The Huns made a strong stajnd round the guns, where the famous Prussian Guard was holding the line. The gims were taken, the gap in the British lines was filled. . As General Alderson wrote, "The Canadians saved the situation." LETHBRIDGE'S HONOR ROLL The following are tlio LetlihridKe casiunKics siiicn liu: (jeBinninK of lliu war: KILLED Lieut. Geo.

Meredith, 2(ilU Battery, The charge of the Fighting Tenth Is of particular interest to Lethbridge people, for many of the lirst boys who went from here were with the Fighting Tenth. In fad the Lethbridge boys supplied the machine gun section of the Battalion. It is also of particular interest because it is believed that Pte. "Billy" Carnill of th'm city was the first man to fall in that memorable charge. Twenty-two out of 2') officers went down before the guns were taken, and about 80 per cent, of the' m^n in the charge were Icillcd or wounded. But the task in hand was done as only veterans could do it, the name of (he Canadian soldier became famous, and (hat is mIiv, today, we are cclebrtiting St. Julien Day from one end of Canada to the other.
