15th Field Regiment Royal Canadian Artillery

The 15th was mobilized from three Prairie NPAM (Reserve) Batteries- the 17th of Winnipeg; the 95th from Calgary and the 110th, Broadview, Sask. early in World War 11. Not to be confused with the 15th Field Regiment (Reserve) of Vancouver.

In action- D Troop, 110th Battery-Kusten Kanal in Germany- The Engineers put the Bailey Bridge up three times, Gerry knocked it down three times. The RCE brought up a new bridge kit at night, and said, "No engineers available- you'll have to assemble and erect it yourselves".

This Humber Scout Car- made by White- could go as fast backward as forward, the driver using a periscope in reverse, and firing two smoke candles if required!
