This site is a tribute to my Great Uncle Ernest Borrow, who emigrated to Canada in 1911 only to return to Europe in 1916 to take part in the Great War

He fell on the 9th April 1917 at the battle of Vimy Ridge – a battle which was won by the Canadian Forces and celebrated as one of the victories by the allies on the Western Front.  –  Norrette Moore
