INTERESTING

For me this explodes the myth,which I have nurchured,that most of the Canadian services wrrere maned by men who had been born in the U.K..I know,from this,it was a high proportion,but nowhere near as large as I had thought.Just an observation.

CHEERS.

JOHN. :D

Great. Thank you for taking the time to transcribe this roll onto the forum and present it to those of us who would not otherwise know about these men. Very interesting.

A higher percentage of the "First Contingent" from the Canadian Expeditionary Force were from the United Kingdom. I believe this was especially true with the Prince Patrica's Canadian Light Infantry which moved overseas first and relied on men with previous military and milita experience.

A significant percentage of the first batch were British-born. However, as the war and casualties progressed, the number of Britsh-born men declined.

Thanks Borden for taking the time to transcribe this roll. I have managed, as a result to find the name of a man whose medals are in my collection. I knew he was a 'bank clerk' but I could never determine what bank.

I very much appreciate the info.

That makes it worthwhile - Thanks.

Maybe someone else can add another Honour Roll from another group/organization. If we keep this up, we can slowly place more material onto the various Great War Forums and make it easier for the next group "coming up" to advance the knowledge.

All of these notations that I place are also being placed into a simple MS-Word document from which one can do a simple "key-word" search and find names, dates and military units. This makes it easy to index and cut-copy-paste referenced material into any research papers.

ROYAL BANK OF CANADA - HONOUR ROLL FROM GREAT WAR

PRIVATE SHEARER, born at Armadale, Scotland, December 19, 1894. Home in Partick, Scotland. Served for three years with the Bank of Scotland. Joined Winnipeg, Manitoba branch, May 22, 1913. Enlisted from Davidson, Saskatchewan branch, June 7, 1915, after having been twice rejected. Present at Vimy Ridge, Ypres and Passchendaele. Killed in action at Passchendaele, October 29, 1917.

Thomas Pitcairn Shearer

post-13002-1151318581.jpg

Son of the late Mr. John Shearer, Blacksmith, Armadale and brother of Mr. Shearer, Headmaster, Armadale Public School. His mother resides at 24 Havelock Street, Dowanhill, Glasgow. Born in Armadale 24 years ago, he had his training in Armadale Public School under Mr. Mathieson, Headmaster.

After leaving School, he became an apprentice with Armadale Pharmacy, but later branched into the banking profession. He entered the Royal Bank at Crieff. So soon as he completed his apprenticeship, he went to Canada, when 18 years of age, and took up work with the Bank of Canada. He by close attention to business had made good progress and was looking forward to further promotion when war broke out. About the same time he underwent an operation for appendicitis. So soon as he believed himself fully recovered he presented himself for service with the Canadian Force. After being thrice rejected he was accepted in June 1915in the Canadian Mounted Rifles.

By January 1916 he was in France, having volunteered to go for transport work. Anxious to get into the fighting zone applied for transfer and was put into a Lewis Gun Section. Prior to being sent up the line, he was granted home leave. He left Glasgow for France, for the second time on 9th October.

While he and his Party were attending to their guns a German shell fell in their midst, and four were killed, the young Armadalian being one of the four. He was in his 24th Year.

Mrs Shearer has two sons still in the fighting line - Allan, who is with the R.F.A and George, who is with the H.L.I.

You can access more information on your soldier from the following websites:

Royal Bank of Canada - Great War Honour Roll

A total of 1,495 Royal Bank staff members enlisted for active service. Of these, 186 were killed in action or died in hospital and five were missing in action. After the war, 786 employees were reinstated, while 516 elected not to return to the bank. In 1920, Royal Bank published a Roll of Honour commemorating those staff members who died or were missing in action - this is the main feature of this site.

Library and Archives Canada - Soldiers of the First World War (1914-1918)

Over 600,000 Canadians enlisted in the Canadian Expeditionary Force (CEF) during the First World War (1914-1918). The CEF database is an index to those personnel files, which are held by the National Archives. To date, over 800,000 images of Attestation papers have been scanned and are being made available on-line. This material can be downloaded at no charge. The file format is a standard JPEG file. From this basic information a researcher can obtain the necessary information to acquire the full military file of a Great War soldier, however, in this latter case there will be a research fee. The CEF Study Group maintains a list of recommended National Archives researchers.

Library and Archives Canada - War Diaries of the First World War

This database contains the digitized War Diaries of the Canadian Expeditionary Force (CEF) units. From the start of the First World War, CEF units were required to maintain a daily account of their “Actions in the Field.” This log was called a War Diary. The War Diaries are not personal diaries, rather they are a historical record of a unit’s administration, operations and activities during the First World War.

Official History of the Canadian Army in the First World War

Canadian Expeditionary Force, 1914-1919, Colonel G. W. L. Nicholson, C.D., Army Historical Section

This is the classic reference text [the Bible] for any student of the Canadian Expeditionary Force during the Great War. The original textbook is very difficult to obtain, however, the document is now available in the Adobe .pdf format directly from the historical section of the Canadian Armed Forces website. This document can be “key-word” searched for specific military units, locations and dates.

4th Canadian Mounted Rifles

The 4th Canadian Mounted Rifles is a place of remembrance to those who served with the 4CMR in World War 1. Whilst initially covering the period from the regiment’s formation in 1914, to just after the heavy losses incurred in the 'Battle for Mount Sorrel' in June 1916, this simple website is not intended to be a site of any expertise on the matter of the First World War, but it is here to be a point of focus for all who had relatives or research subjects who served at any time with the 4th CMR.

Hello David

I am not sure if your message was meant for me or others, however, whatever I post on the GWF is intended to be used by the widest number of people. This list I provided farther up the discussion thread is only a small sample of some 425 websites on a master list (another 100 are under review).
