The RCRs carry out a successful raid & got 5 prisoners (one with an Iron Cross). Our casualties two slightly wounded. Several German dugouts were bombed & inmates killed.
*RCR ~ Royal Canadian Regiment
*The Iron Cross (in German ‘Eiserne Kreuz’) was reinstituted during the Franco-Prussian War of 1870-71 and again by Kaiser Wilhelm II on 5 August 1914 for use during the First World War. The medal was awarded to recognise acts of heroism, bravery and leadership. In spite of its evident prestige it was a widely issued medal: almost six million were awarded during wartime, although by far the majority of these (5,500,000) were awarded to the lowest of three classes of the medal, the Iron Cross (Second Class).
