In October, 2013, a small expedition of the Elmer French family went to Europe in search of the grave of their uncle, Pte. Oscar French, who was killed in 1917 at Vimy Ridge. They found it in Nine Elms Military Cemetery.
Oscar was an teenage farm boy when he enlisted in the Canadian army in 1915. During training, he became a machine gunner. As the famous attack on Vimy Ridge began on Easter Monday, April 9, 1917, he and another soldier were hit by shellfire. It is the intent of writer Orland French to incorporate his uncle's letters into a book on the First World War.
