Researching The Royal Canadian Regiment

The 168th Canadian Infantry Battalion
Roll of Honour

Silver Memorial Cross given to mothers and wives of fallen soldiers.

Silver Memorial Cross given to mothers and wives of fallen soldiers.

The following Officers, Warrant Officers, non-commissioned officers and soldiers of the 168th Canadian Infantry Battalion were casualties of the First World War. Following the War, the right of perpetuation of the 168th Battalion was granted to The Oxford Rifles. In the 1950s, The Oxford Rifles were amalgamated with The Canadian Fusiliers (City of London Regiment) and The Royal Canadian Regiment. In 1958, the Regimental Senate of The Royal Canadian Regiment announced that the Regiment would accept all perpetuations from this amalgamation.

As the 168th Battalion did not go to the field in France and Flanders as a fighting unit, very few (if any) soldiers who enlisted with the unit would have still belonged to 168th Battalion at the time of their deaths. This list was developed through the transcription of the 168th Battalion's Sailing List, and then comparing that list of names to Ted Wigney's CEF Roll of Honour.

This list is a work in progress, and any additions or corrections are welcome. Suggestions for amendment can be forwarded to The Regimental Rogue.
