I've been off line over the weekend while involved in another activity in Victoria. However, I did get a chance to spend some time in the BC Archives while I was there and discovered a few interesting historical notes from 15th Brigade Canadian Field Artillery.
I have a partial copy of Lt Col Beeston's submission to the Defence Quarterly Magazine which outlines the early history of the unit. I'll post each section as I manage to find time to transcribe them. The first section is now on-line in the 1919 yearbook.
I also found the nominal roll for the 15th Brigade Canadian Field Artillery as it set sail on the S.S. Cameronia on 13th Sept 1916. I've added the following names into the nominal roll:
Lieutenant Colonel Ogilvie, Alexander Thomas
Captain Brows, Herbert Austin
Captain Fowler, Jordan Mott
Captain Gillespie, Hebden John
Captain Latimer, Herbert James
IF we had perpetuated the 15th Brigade from the First World War we could have claimed Lieutenant-Colonel Ogilvie as being our first Commanding Officer.
I've also added the following more recent members onto our nominal roll:
Ployart, Chris W; Davis, Toni; Tymo, Darlene, M; Franner, Linda A
