The Heritage Committee of the C&E Association and the C&E Branch are participating in the Commemoration of the 100th Anniversary of the Battle of Vimy Ridge by organizing a Canadian Battlefield Tour (WWI & WWII) 1-10 April 2017, to include participation in the national ceremony at Vimy Ridge on 9 April 2017. This is also part of the Canada 150 program. We have reserved the tour accommodation, bus transport, and tour guide for up to 50 personnel through Merit Travel, Kingston, Ontario in accordance with the attached Tour Itinerary. Note double occupancy with spouse or colleague. Registration (see mail-in form attached) and deposit will be required by 15 Nov 15, 2015. Regret short notice. First come -first served and therefore ASAP you may wish to notify interest by e mail to Merit Travel (quote Signals / C&E Vimy 2017) e mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
The objective is to have a combination of regular, reserve, and retired members of the C&E Branch participate in this event. If the interest exceeds the capacity of early registration then we may be able to book a second group. Within the current allocation, the Branch Office will be organizing allocation of spaces for serving personnel (regular and reserves) with a priority to junior NCMs and junior officers. However other serving members of the C&E Branch who are interested to join this tour may wish to register individually as per this instruction.
