Military Monday: Battalion Photos

Following up on a post about CEF Infantry Battalions information came an email asking where a photo of the  183rd Btn might be found. I didn’t know.

Battalions with higher numbers were used for recruiting and training, then dispersed once in Europe. The 183rd, headquartered in Winnipeg, went through that in 1916. My best suggestion was to contact the Archives of Manitoba and City of Winnipeg Archives.

On Saturday the OGS eWeekly had an item Archives of Ontario Shares Photos to Wikimedia Commons. Included is a high-quality example of the type of photo, this for Soldiers of the 227th Regiment, Gore Bay.

If you know of a source for a photo of the 183rd please post a comment.
