The 24th Battalion, C.E.F., Victoria Rifles of Canada, 1914 - 1919
The 24th Battalion, C.E.F., Victoria Rifles of Canada, 1914 - 1919. A well written and detailed history of this Montreal based military unit from its beginnings as a volunteer unit, during the
1812 invasions, through its recognition as a militia through the Fenian raids and a number of civil disorders to its conversion to a full time component of the C.E.F., including its contribution of a core of trained officers and men in the formation of the 14th Battalion, Royal Montreal Regiment. Throughout, the account is well illustrated with photographs, sketches and situation maps. An additional map of the Battle of Arras in June 1916 and June 1917 was slipped into the book by one of the previous owners. The book's appendices contain an honour Roll as well as lists of earned honours, commissions and the Battalions battle statistics. The Archive CD Books Project exists to make reproductions of old books, documents and maps available on CD to genealogists and historians, and to cooperate with local libraries, museums and record offices in providing money to renovate old books in their collection, and to donate books to their collections, where they will be preserved for future generations.
