100+ years of history! It's amazing how much information is out there about the 15th Field Artillery Regiment, RCA and its many perpetuations. The original website was based on the formation of the Regiment in 1920 and its linear history to 2020. The first modification to that plan was the inclusion of the histories of the 31st, 58th, 68th, and 85th batteries prior to 1920. This modification is still being worked on and additional information will be added as time permits.
In the meantime, I have now started on an additional modification with the addition of new pages in 1939 and 1940 to capture the history of the new units that were created to meet the demands of the war. Check out the start of the 15th (Vancouver) Coast Brigade, RCA, NPAM and the 1st Ant-Aircraft Regiment, RCA, CASF. The material is still in its infancy and will be added to as material is found.
Would you like to join the team putting the website together? I'm finding the War Diaries fascinating and feel the best way of sharing them is transcribing the text from the .jpeg and .pdf formats so that they can be searchable. I'm looking for volunteers to work on retyping the war diaries into word documents. Would you like to try it out and see if you enjoy spending some time in the evening reading about our early history? email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll send you a month's worth to work on.
