64 Days Until Armistice
A hard fought victory secured the Canadians a rare rest. As Archibald MacDonell’s 1st Canadian Division continued to cycle out of the line, they were relieved by elements of the 2nd Division. The relative quietness of the Canadian sector allowed for a reduced presence on the front line, though reinforcements were kept only a stone’s throw away.
While the Canadians began soft preparations for an assault on the Canal du Nord, Allied forces continued the fight elsewhere in France. Ham fell to French forces early in the day, with slight resistance, while British forces pushed east of Peronne.
