Default Footage from Mt Kemmel or St Eloi, 1915-16

I have researched my gt-grandfather Patrick Jeffries service with the 28th Btn from 1915 until he died fighting in the craters at Ste.Eloi in Belgium on April 10, 1916.
I have written a 100-page 'book' about this, finished on the 100th anniversary of his death, after visiting the sites and his grave in 2015. My grandmother once told me that she saw him - her father, in a CBC Remembrance Day film in the 1960s. She hadn't seen him since he left them in Winnipeg.

I am looking for advice on whether there is any film footage taken in the Mt. Kemmel area or the St Eloi area from 1915, 1916 in the archives somewhere that I might be able to view somehow to see if I can spot him too. For that matter if there are any archives with photos of the Mt. Kemmel campaign (Sept 1915-Mar. 1916 or the battle of the Craters of Ste. Eloi, April 1916 both in Belgium I would be keen to review them.

Can you advise me on this or where I might look?

Grateful for any assistance,
Les Paulsen

you need to post it using a photo sharing service. Here's how you do this. I use "photobucket" but you can use any service you wish
