Shoulder patch - 3rd Infantry brigade - 1st Canadian Division

"Faithful Forever"


We have not attempted to list all officers who served in the 15th battalion through the war. Rather, we provide below a series of “snapshots” for each year of the war. For many years we have a photo (with as many names as possible identified) and a listing showing the organizational structure of the battalion at that time.

Click HERE to see a gallery of some of those who served.

Names in red indicate died/killed. Names in blue indicate taken prisoner.
