It's amazing how much history can be contained in such a small object.

The second battle of Arras happened between the 26th of August and the 3rd of September in 1918. During that battle the Canadian Corps suffered 11,000 casualties including killed, wounded and missing soldiers. Over 400 of those Canadian soldiers have no known graves.

The date of 1917 would make the Ypres on this reference the Third Battle of Ypres, which was also known as the Battle of Passchendaele. There are so many stories of Canadians in that battle. At the end there were over 4000 Canadian casualties and almost 12,000 wounded.

So much history for a little letter opener to hold.
