Report of the Ministry Overseas Military Forces of Canada, 1918

Post by BFBSM » Tue Apr 17, 2018 2:06 am

In 1918 (published 1919), the Minister, Overseas Military Forces of Canada, The Honourable Sir Edward Kemp, K.C.M.G., M.P., had a report prepared for the Canadian Parliament:
During the years in which the Empire was at War, Canada's share steadily increased until the little Force which crossed the Atlantic in 1914 had developed into a mighty organization whose activities extended into every sphere of military effort.

I have, therefore, thought it proper to submit a report of these activities to Parliament, and through it to the people of Canada, in the hope that it may prove of interest to them.

The report which follows does not presume to be an exhaustive account of all such activities. These are so numerous and so varied in their nature that it would be an almost impossible task to prepare a complete record of them at this stage. An endeavour, however, has been made to make a general survey of many matters which came under the surveillance of this Ministry, chiefly during the year 1918. In view of the purpose of the report, details and language of a technical nature have been avoided as much as possible.
