The Plan
 

Prior to the start of the battle, members of the Newfoundland Regiment spent several weeks practicing how to advance with tanks.   On November 20, they moved into position. The Regiment was to follow the main attack on the Hindenburg Line. Its objective was to seize the St. Quentin Canal and the town of Masnières, clearing the way for cavalry to move on to Cambrai.
