Crest Farm Canadian Memorial & Canada Gate
This marks the place where the Canadian corps saw fierce fighting during the second Battle of Passchendaele and won possession of the high ground at Crest Farm.
Canada Gate is the second of two so-called “portals of remembrance.” The first monument, installed last year on the Halifax waterfront in Canada, marks the departure from Pier 2 of 350,000 soldiers who boarded ships bound for the battlefields of Belgium and France. Canada Gate marks the arrival place of a lot of Canadian soldiers.
