Newfoundland At Armageddon

Descendants’ Night Raid Experience

In the days preceding the battle, soldiers from all regiments, including the Newfoundland Regiment, went out on patrol at night. There were three types of patrols: Reconnaissance Patrols would search for gaps in the enemy's barbed wire and gather useful information; Listening Patrols would go out at night into No Man's Land and gather clues about a potential attack; and Bombing Patrols would attack German patrols or throw explosives into their trenches. Descendants felt more connected to their ancestors after reliving a night patrol.
