1st Canadian Mounted Rifles - In Memoriam

 "...And thrice again the wood that travestied its name of Sanctuary, where the stripped and splintered boles of once lovely trees seemed to point accusing fingers at an unheeding sky, and endlessly, the shells fell..." (Lt. H.L.Holloway)

(Banner shot from a Menin Panel by Frederik Sohier - see 'Links'.)


"...Practically all the Officers in the 1st CMR's have been killed or wounded since I left and the B'n has been wiped out twice or three times so I guess when all is said and done - I'm lucky..."  (William John McLellan, October 16, 1918)

___________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Rather than duplicate some excellent work that has already been done, such as the site immediately below, I intend to list information in a different format, and to transcribe and supplement a document that has not been seen before - Major Maxfield's own 36 page handwritten Nominal Roll of his original "A" Squadron. beginning lower on the page. (See the original scans on the Flickr site at 'Gallery')

Link to the excellent Erik Hillis 'Canada at War' site, 'Virtual Memorial' Page 100. Click on '1st Canadian Mounted Rifles (Saskatchewan Regt.)' in the 'Regiment' column for a 9-page list of 870 1st CMR men killed; click on the name for dates and burial sites, where known: The Commonwealth War Graves Commission has sent a list of 1,003 1st CMR men who died during, or soon after The Great War; so will start a comparison. (The complete list has 3,584 Canadian Mounted Riflemen of all units losing their lives.)

__________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Missing from that list (Canada At War) are some heavy casualties from the fighting on 29th September 1918 around the Brick Works near the Arras - Cambrai Road. 3 Officers, Lieutenants J.W.North, I.C.Maharg, M.MacRae and 73 Ordinary Ranks were killed, (6 Officers and 247 O.R.'s were wounded). 

The aftermath of June 2nd 1916 at Sanctuary Wood and Observatory Ridge (known as Mount Sorrel, but slightly further north of where the 4th CMR were), is spread over the following days. The survivors were led out of the Front Line on June 3rd by Lt's Charles Donald Livingstone (KIA Oct 12th 1916) and Burns Kerweld Thomson (KIA Sept 15 1916), so I presume most of the deaths were actually on June 2nd, but recorded as later, due to the chaos after the attack by The 13th (Royal Württemberg) Army Corps (XIII. (Königlich Württembergisches) Armeekorps).

William Barker V.C., who transferred from the 1st CMR to the RFC earlier in 1916, wrote "...I see where my regiment CMRs have almost been wiped out. I always knew they would fight like tigers..."

The underlined text (not the links) is to show where words are crossed out in the original, as using 'strike through' makes them hard to read. Some of the 'missing' at Hooge (June 2nd 1916) show up on memorials, others don't, so I presume they were taken prisoner. I will add bracketed notes as I find details. Please let me know any corrections; some script is hard to decipher - the uncrossed 't's for example can be a puzzle.

Ex-Officers 1st C.M.R. Battalion Winnipeg, Man., Oct.21st, 1939.

The following letter and list give an insight into the lives and work of the returning survivors. Quite a few were marked "out" (meaning dead) by Chivers, and Walter (Maxfield) has added the same as time went on - one, Capt. Petherick, I know died in 1959 in Bude, Cornwall, so I'm presuming Walter was keeping up to date for his last trip to the Manitoba Club reunion in 1961). Guessing they didn't start reunions until 1930, if '39 was the 10th annual one. McLaws and Ross are listed as living in the beautiful Paris Building in Winnipeg. http://www.virtual.heritagewinnipeg.com/vignettes/window/more/151.htm

Major W.E.Maxfield, D.S.O., "Cambrai" 47 Roman Road, Salisbury, England.

Dear Sir:

The tenth annual Armistice Day Re-union of the ex-officers of the 1st C.M.R. Battalion will be held on the 11th day of November, 1939, at 12:30 p.m. at the Manitoba Club, Winnipeg.

Please write or telephone 97 733 not later than the 8th of November if you plan to attend.

Enclosed for your information is a list of ex-officers of the unit with their addresses. As it is possibly incomplete the writer would appreciate receiving any additions or amendments so that our records may be kept up to date.

If you are in the City please make an effort to attend.

Yours sincerely,

C.W.U. Chivers.

CWUC/JH Encl.

(and handwritten:) This keeps you up to date as to old members of the unit. We feel a little out of the war. While one Division is evidently leaving inside of two months. There seems little enthusiasm or desire on part of lads to join up. The spirit is with returned lads however, who would mostly like to be in it again. Good luck, and may the war be decisive & short.
