The Final 100 Days: The Pursuit to Mons - November 5, 1918

On the Western Front, the remnants of the Imperial German Army were in open retreat. The Canadian Corps kept hot on the German’s heels. 

A cold rain washed over the advancing Corps. 

The 5th C.M.R would make another attempt to capture Vicq. Entering the city early in the morning, they found it deserted. British forces operating south had pressured the two German battalions to leave. 

Men of the 12th Brigade achieved success at Quarouble, in spite of an organized German defence. 

Canadian Forces pursued the retreating Germans across the open plains of Northern France, towards the Belgian city of Mons.
