48th Drafts

In addition to the 92nd and 134th Battalions, and the 92nd Battalion Reinforcing draft, the home Regiment (the 48th Highlanders) also recruited many men for other CEF Battalions. The first draft raised after the departure of the 15th Battalion in 1914, was a half company of 100 men for the 19th Battalion under command of Captain N Perry and this was the Regiment’s representation in the 2nd Division. A full company was also raised in 1914 for the 35th Battalion under command of Major R Wilson and Captains Campbell and W Gow.

In 1915 two platoons totalling 60 men were later recruited for the 58th Battalion under command of Lt. G Cassels and a full company under command of Capt MR Gooderham for the 74th Battalion. A further 100 men under Captain Mathieson were recruited for the 73rd Battalion in that same year.
