Canadian Cemetery No.2, France - Burial Ceremony 23rd August 2017

Burial ceremony in honour of an unknown soldier of the Canadian Expeditionary Force.  The soldier was discovered on 27 September 2012, during an excavation prior to the construction of an industrial estate.

Found without personal or unit identifiers, but with a metal “CANADA” insignia such as would be found on a military tunic, he cannot be identified except as one of 3,426 Canadian servicemen missing from the 10-month period of action at Vimy. He would have died between 1 November 1916 and the end of July 1917.
