First Canadian Contingent photos by J.A. Millar

Serving up rations at Valcartier Camp

I found this excellent collection of WW1 photos from 1914 while conducting research into the First Canadian Contingent, one of several online collections from the University of Victoria.

This photo album features photos by J.A. Millar, a staff photographer with the Montreal Daily Star. The collection includes a large number of photos taken at Valcartier camp in September 1914 as well as some excellent images of troops and ships being loaded in Quebec in early October. A handful of evocative photos from the Dominion Arsenal in Quebec are also featured.

The entire collection can be found on the UVIC Military History digital collections website.
