Battlefield Memorial Card

A memorial card made by someone who made a battlefield pilgrimage to Belgium in 1934. It contains two pieces of heather. The first was from the area of the Canadian Memorial at St. Julien 22 April 1915 and perhaps the date is day a relative died? The second heather is from Hill 60.

Details of the fighting at Hill 60 can be found HERE and of the Canadian Memorial at St Julien HERE
