    There are a number of men here that went on to make quite a name for themselves in World War One......

    WESTERN MEN ARRIVE TO-DAY

    NORTHWEST BATTALION OF MOUNTED RIFLES COMING BY

    SPECIAL TRAINS - LARGE CROWDS FAREWELL

    THE BOYS AT REGINA

    THE SQUADRONS REACH WINNIPEG AT NOON AND WILL

    BE DINED AT THE DRILL HALL SKETCHES OF

    THE MEN FROM EDMONTON


    All details have been arranged in regard to launching the 2nd battalion of the Canadian Mounted Rifles, who will arrive here today at 12:45 from Regina and Calgary. Some 400 men will reach here by the C.P.R. In two different trains; the railroad officials will do all in their power to have the last section here before one o'clock so that the men can sit down together at Broadway drill hall.

    Some of the aldermen are trying to make arrangements to have the men form up at the station and march in a body to the city hall where they will have the street cars. If there is time for this it will give Winnipeggers an opportunity of seeing what a fine body of men the westerners are, but it is feared that the men will have trolleyed direct from the station to the drill hall and back again owing to the limited time. About a dozen street cars will be needed for conveyance. Aid. Mitchell, the acting mayor, with Col. Ruttan, will meet the men at the station and accompany them to the Broadway Drill Hall, where Mrs. Hample will cater. The city engineer's department has erected temporary tables in the hall.

    The following district order has been issued:

    "Headquarters M.D. No. 10, Winnipeg, 15th January 1900."

    "The officers of the militia, including those on the reserve and retired list have been invited by the city council to meet Lieut. -Col. Herchmer and the western contingent for South Africa at the drill hall at 1 o'clock on Tuesday the 16th inst. Officers are requested to attend in winter uniform.

    H. N. RUTTAN, LT.-COL. D.O.C., M.D. No. 10.

    The city treasurer, Mr. W. G. Scott, has received a letter from Regimental Sergeant-Major Frank Church, of the western battalion of Mounted Rifles informing him that the majority of the members of the N.W.M.P. Lodge 61, A.F. and A.M., are going away on the western contingent and as they stop some time in Winnipeg they would be very pleased to see him and if possible the Grand Master, Col. John Leslie and such of the brethren as could meet them.


    ENTRAINING AT REGINA

    Regina, Jan. 15. - The train for the Regina contingent of the Northwest Mounted Rifles, was run to the barrack's siding at 4 o'clock, and at 5 o'clock the train steamed into Regina station. Here a large and enthusiastic crowd had gathered from a wide area around the capital. A special train had brought a crowd from Moose Jaw, accompanied by its town band. Patriotic airs by the band, and loud cheering by the public, continued all the time the train was being made up. The Lieutenant Governor and Madam Forget were in the crowd.

    There were two ladies in the train vis., Mrs. Westgate, whose husband is a volunteer, and Mrs. Randall, daughter of Col. Herchmer, with her baby daughter, whose grandfather commands the battalion and whose father and uncle are volunteers in its ranks. The train pulled out amid renewed cheers, and as it did so the headlight of the second section, with the Calgary and Macleod boys on board came into sight. The precision and promptitude with which the entraining occurred are much admired, and credit is given to Col. Herchmer and his officers and Mr. Milestone and the C.P.R. officials for the excellent arrangements that have characterized the starting of the battalion on its long journey to the seat of war. The horses are 157 in number and they were loaded in 1 hour and 15 minutes by eight men, and the whole of the movements were carried out with similar promptitude.

    Very interesting read. Thanks for sharing.

    By the way, what is the significance of the chest measurement for each man's description?

    In the Bad Old Days the chest measurement was one way to prove that you were fit..... I guess that is the information that was released to the press by the military and they just published it all.....

    Just remember they did not have the BMI back then...... I remember when I was a recruit there was a fellow matloe, a PTI, in my unit who stood 6' 11" and weighed nearly 370 lbs....... There was not an oz. of fat on him and yet he failed the BMI test..... He could have picked up the Dr. that gave the test with one hand..... LOL
