In the years of WW1, the Royal Hamilton Light Infantry set up a firing range in the west end of Hamilton. To train the soldiers who would be shipped overseas to join the hellacious trench combat.
Canadian soldiers fought with tremendous valor and became feared by the German soldiers, in fact the Germans called them the shock troops of the allied forces.
All that remains of this firing range today is a bunker and a stone wall on the Chedoke Rail Trail. The bunker was used for target practice and the stone wall was erected to protect the trains from any stray bullets.
Below is the photo set of a church with a WW1 memorial and the bunker. Check out the video to get more info and see the stone wall!
This was a perfect spot for Remembrance day, I am both humbled and proud to have been able to document this piece of military history! Lest We Forget!
