Bombardier Cox explains the demise of 15th Brigade and the reason it was absorbed by the other Canadian Field Artillery Brigades: Well, the news is now official, and that is that today the proud 59th Battery of Winnipeg ceased to exist. All Batteries are now to go to the front with 6 guns instead of 4. They have decided to split the best one of each Brigade and as the 59th did the best showing at Salisbury Plains, we got the axe. 1/2 are attached to the 60th and 1/2 to the 61st. All of our bunch (bank fellows) are in the 60th. Of course we were awfully sore, but they should worry! The Officers have all gone to different Brigades.
This is the reason the 15th Field Artillery Regiment celebrates 2 February 1920 as our birthday rather than 15 July 1916.
