Black Watch Military Tattoo

April 9th 2017 marked the 100th anniversary of the Battle of Vimy Ridge. The First World War battle is Canada’s most iconic military victory, and frequently cited as a defining moment in Canadian history.

Black Watch Tatoo flyerTo commemorate this famous anniversary, The Black Watch Royal Highland Regiment of Canada put on a spectacular show at Montreal’s Bell Centre – complete with traditional highland pipes and drums, displays of military skill, and civilian performing artists.

As part of the show, James produced a Battle of Vimy Ridge tribute video – highlighting key moments from the battle and life in the trenches, through a montage of pictures and archive footage taken from the frontlines of the First World War.
