    I remember my late father telling me how they dug up bones from WWI on Vimy Ridge whilst laying their anti-aircraft guns before the retreat to Dunkirk. Can anyone tell me which division were on the ridge that spring.

    Do you know what regiment he was in ? I could probably post the diary pages for the period they were there.

    Anyone know *cough* Dave?

    One of the Fd Regts of 5th Div had an OP on the memorial itself & some units of 5th & 50th Divs had units in the old preserved trenches.
    We've mentioned it on here a few times.
    I havent got time for a search now.
    Maybe later.
