World War 1 Remembered
1916 - January to March
49th Canadian Overseas Infantry Battalion
In early January of 1916 the 3rd Canadian Division had joined the Canadian Corps in the Messines Ridge sector in Belgium. The division’s 7th Brigade, including the 49th Battalion, moved into line on the southern shoulder of the Ypres Salient around Kemmel. After two relatively uneventful months, the brigade moved, in late March 1916, to the salient itself.
