Its Memorial day in NFLD? I didn't know that. How come?
The battle of Beaumont Hamel, 1st Battalion of The Newfoundland Regiment soldiers in WW1. 710 killed, wounded or missing. It was the biggest loss of the Regiment. Been memorial day since before condfederation...kind of a weird mixed day here...memorial service, then Canada day celebrations later on.

read more here, it's pretty interesting
