As we approach Remembrance Day, and having recently celebrated the 100th anniversary of the Battle of Vimy Ridge, the people of Quebec City should remember that three members of the English-speaking community were generals who played an important role in the First World War. Two of these men even commanded divisions at Vimy, a unique honour for our city.
