[/QUOTE]Sir Arthur Currie isn't forgotten in these parts.His home town of Strathroy commissioned and unveiled a life-size bronze statue of him last year.There is also a move afoot to bring more recognition to the Canadians' taking of Hill 70,which took almost as many lives as Vimy.The CEF under Currie was also very successful in the last 100 days.
