Remembered Today:

artillery experience


Recommended Posts

I recently learned my great uncle left after some time assigned to US Army Coastal Artillery (we think) went AWOL and came north to Valcartier and spent 5 years in country.  Does anyone have any idea which CEF units might have been interested in his experience?  He apparently served under an unknown alias.  Thanks to all!

Any Canadian Artillery unit would have been interested.

The principals of Gunnery are the same whether it is a static coastal gun or a mobile field artillery gun. It is the equipment drills that differ. 

If he had been a signaller, or other employment, similarly the skill sets would have been of interest.

He could also have ended up in any unit, military experience being of interest to any regiment.
