Passchendaele and Tyne Cot Cemetery
The elusive village of Passchendaele fell into Canadian hands -- specifically the hands of the 27th (City of Winnipeg) Battalion of the Second Division on November 6, 1918. Long after the strategic objectives of the campaign were abandoned, the Canadian Corps was called on to seize a final commanding rise that had been heavily fortified by the Germans. Renewing the attack on October 26th General Currie's troops advanced fitfully, finally capturing the village atop the hill. Afterwards, they spent several days straightening out the frontline, concluding on 10 November, considered to be the final day of the Third Battle of Ypres.
