Recollections of a Nonagenarian of Service in The Royal Canadian Regiment (1916-19)

N.B.: This division of the original manuscript and page titling has been added to facilitate presentation on line.

These notes by Lieutenant Robert England were written in 1983 and privately published in the centennial year of The Royal Canadian Regiment. They describe his period of service with The Royal Canadian Regiment during the First World War. As he has commented in the endnotes, readers are advised: "This memoir is personal and assumes [the] reader will look to published histories for the World War I background and story of the Canadian Expeditionary Force in France."

This relatively rare work is presented to provide one more source for anyone researching The Royal Canadian Regiment in the Great War. In on-line searches, only four bibliographical references to these Recollections were found. It is not believed that they have been made available in any form other than the limited issue in 1983.
