WW1 Canadian Regimental Histories

Here you will find a list of digitized regimental histories, booklets and souvenir albums of Canadian units that served during the First World War.  They are ordered numerically by unit number with unnumbered unit publications listed alphabetically at the end.

The University of Calgary and The Military Museums of Calgary have created an excellent resource providing free access to a large number of digitized Canadian unit histories. In addition I’ve included links to free digitized histories published on the Internet Archive, Library and Archives Canada and the British Library. Please note that the LAC links are to PDF documents, some of which are in excess of 50Mb each. Unless otherwise indicated the links below are to histories at the University of Calgary.

  1. Hello. Three of my ancestors attested to the 154th Battalion (Eastern Ontario) and were transferred to in the 21st Battalion. In your research have you come across any information on those Battalions?

  2. Interesting story on the 37th Regimant Co.1 Haldimand Rifles of York Village. A note of the drill sheds, one was built in the Village of York according to the 1879 map. Their headquarters was the Enniskillen building that still stands today on Hwy 54 in the Village of York, Seneca Township, Haldimand County. I am researching Renshaws, Martindales and Taggarts.

    • Hi Taylor, thanks very much for your comments. If you end up posting or publishing information on the 37th Regiment please let me know and perhaps I can link to it. Thanks again, Steve.
