  • Notes 
    • Arthur Gambrell was in the 1st Canadian Mountain Division.
      The battalion fought in most of the 3rd Canadian Division's engagements until the end of the war.
      The 1st CMR, along with the 4th CMR, was manning the 3rd Division's front on June 2, 1916, when the Germans launched their assault at the outset of the Battle of Mount Sorrel. Its positions were overrun, and 557 of its 692 members (80%) were killed, wounded or captured.] (Wikipedia)
