Thanks.

Also, happy Beaumont Hamel day for us Newfoundlanders. If that's appropriate, considering what we're honouring.

Well, I think it only fair. If you want to make a separate post about it to fill in the people who don't know what you're talking about?

I'm not sure what to say. 800 of our finest youth marched across a bloody field into machine guns. 69 were left standing 30 minutes later. It devasted much of our best and brightest, it was a gross act of stupidity in a war of stupidity, and we've still never gotten over it. Never made up the scars. It's our Memorial Day.

Well, I'd say that's a good start -- I didn't know much about it to begin with.

I don't think I could offer more than what Wiki offers. The Blue Puttees went over the top and charged machine guns and barbed wire. The Brits shelled the place for hours, which just gave the Germans notice. It wiped us out. We lost so much.
