in August of 1914 (First to Fight!). In 1916 they also added the 206th CEF batallion to the frey. They received their present name in 1920. Based in Quebec City, the regiment mobilized as Le Régiment de Maisonneuve, CASF, on 1
September 1939. It embarked for Great Britain on 24 August 1940. It was redesignated as the 1st Battalion, Le Régiment de Maisonneuve, CASF, on 7 November 1940. 17 On 7 July 1944, the
battalion landed in France as part of the 5th Infantry Brigade, 2nd Canadian Infantry Division. It suffered heavy casualties in the Battle of the Scheldt, and was notably depleted by the time of the
Battle of Walcheren Causeway. The unit
recovered during the winter and was again in action during the Rhineland fighting and the final weeks of the war, taking part in the final campaigns in northern Netherlands, the
Battle of Groningen, and the final
attacks on German soil.
