From the St. Lawrence to the Yser with the 1st Canadian Brigade
From the St. Lawrence to the Yser with the 1st Canadian brigade is a classic World War One memoir by Frederic C. Curry. Before the war the Canadian Militia consisted of about 75,000 of all ranks and all grades of efficiency. To a neutral eye it must have appeared to be in a highly disorganised condition, for battalions and corps had sprung up here and there throughout the country with no proportion existing between them and the other arms of the service. And yet within a short two months after the outbreak of hostilities a complete division, armed and equipped, landed in England, and in a bare six months were in the field holding their own line of trenches.
