In commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the Battle of Gueudecourt (12th October 1916), a ceremony was held at the Newfoundland Gueudecourt Memorial.
This bronze caribou is one of six that were erected in remembrance of the men who fought with the Royal Newfoundland Regiment. Four can be found in France (Beaumont-Hamel, Monchy le Preux, Masnières), one in Belgium (Courtrai) and the sixth in St. John's, Newfoundland. The caribou of Gueudecourt stands upon the very positions that the Newfoundlanders fought for during the Battle of the Transloy (1-18 October 1916).
Many thanks to Sylvie Hauwel for the photos of this moving service
