Non-Commissioned Officers and Soldiers

As many as 4700 soldiers and non-commissioned officers (NCOs) served overseas with The RCR during the First World War. The following links will provide further information on some of these Canadian soldiers and NCOs.

Soldiers' Narratives

The following links will provide a view of regimental soldiering in The RCR during the Great War. Each presented narrative has been developed from the soldier's service record and other available sources.

Most narratives formerly linked at this page have been moved to a new section of the website: The O'Leary Collection; Medals of The Royal Canadian Regiment. The "old" pages have not been removed and links to them from outside sources will continue to work. Those remaining below are ones which are not represented by medals in the collection.
