Highlights from the 2016 "Trail of the Caribou"

19 Heritage Fair students journeyed on a European tour retracing the steps of the Royal Newfoundland Regiment in the First World War, coinciding with the 100th anniversary of the Battle of Beaumont-Hamel. The participating students accompanied educators, government officials, Legion members and student Legion contest winners on an educational tour through England, France and Belgium. The delegation visited the five bronze caribou monuments to the Royal Newfoundland Regiment, visited various sites and cemeteries recognizing the sacrifice of WW1 soldiers, and also participated in numerous memorial services, including the official Beaumont Hamel 100th Anniversary Ceremony.
