The 16th Battalion (The Canadian Scottish): an inventory of records

Introduction The records of the 16th Battalion (The Canadian Scottish) Canadian Expeditionary Force were donated to the University of Victoria Special Collections between 1976 and 1999. They document the activities of the Battalion from 1900 to its re-organization in 1920 into the Canadian Scottish Regiment. The records will be of special interest to those studying military history and complement many other military records housed at the University of Victoria Archives/Special Collections. Researchers may, in particular wish to consult the finding aids of the records of Canadian Army and the Canadian Scottish Regiment.

Main Entry: 16th Battalion (The Canadian Scottish). Canadian Expeditionary Force, 1900 - 1920. Title: 16th Battalion (The Canadian Scottish) fonds. Dates: 1900 - 1923. Extent: 197 centimetres of textual records. -- 160 photographs.

Administrative History The large and powerful pro-Scottish citizenry of Victoria appealed for the formation of a Highland Regiment in Victoria to augment the 88th Regiment (Victoria Fusiliers) which had been formed on 3 September 1912. Therefore, on 15 August 1913 the 50th Regiment was authorized. The 88th Regiment and the 50th Regiment were placed on active service on 10 August 1914 for local protective duty. These regiments contributed respectively to the 7th and 16th Battalions of the Canadian Expeditionary Force. The 16th Battalion (The Canadian Scottish) was formed from four companies of unrelated Highland regiments. On the sea voyage to England, the Regiment was still dressed in four different styles, tartans, and badges. When the first Canadian Contingent sailed for England on 3 October 1914, the 16th Battalion was part of the 3rd Infantry Brigade, 1st Canadian Division. It was on 16 December, on Salisbury Plain, that the Battalion was sub-titled "The Canadian Scottish”. The Battalion sailed for France on 12 February 1915 and disembarked at St. Naziaire three days later. The 16th Battalion took part in all the major engagements of the Canadian corps, including the battles of Ypres, the Somme, Vimy Ridge, and Passchendale. Honours and awards included four Victoria Crosses, 9 DSOs, 40 MCs, 30 DCMs, and 204 MMs. The War cost the 16th Battalion 5,491 casualties, of which 1,412 were fatal. On 15 December in 1915, the Regiment was specially authorized by King George V to wear the Oak Leaf and Acorn Canadian Scottish shoulder titles in commemoration of its courage at the Battle of St. Julien (Kitchener's Wood). The 16th Battalion returned on the "Empress of Britain” on 4 May 1919 to find, that like most Canadian Expeditionary Force battalions, it had no regimental home. On 7 May, in Winnipeg the Battalion was demobilized. However, General Order No. 30, issued on 15 March 1920, reorganized Victoria’s 88th and 50th Regiments into the Canadian Scottish Regiment Non-Permanent Active Militia.
