WW1 Town Souvenir of Canadian interest -Vimy Dangler Style Sweetheart Brooch Pin Badge
Silver washed leaf with sword and brass letter dangler style with the word VIMY below. Some rust to pin, a slight leaf tip loss to one spike (see photo) and sword bent downwards but this looks deliberate as part of the design. Original and functional pin to the reverse. Circa 3.5cm tall.
Attacking together for the first time, four Canadian divisions stormed Vimy ridge at 5:30am on 9 April 1917. More than 15,000 Canadian infantry overran the Germans all along the front. Hill 145, the highest and most important feature of the Ridge, and where the Vimy monument now stands, was captured in a frontal bayonet charge against machine-gun positions. Three more days of costly battle delivered final victory. The Canadian operation was an important success, but it was victory at a heavy cost: 3,598 Canadians were killed and another 7,000 wounded.
Vimy became a symbol for the sacrifice of the young Dominion. In 1922, the French government ceded to Canada in perpetuity Vimy Ridge, and the land surrounding it. The gleaming white marble and haunting sculptures of the Vimy Memorial, unveiled in 1936, stand as a terrible and poignant reminder of the 11,285 Canadian soldiers killed in France who have no known graves.
