History / Biographical
The 43rd Canadian Infantry Battalion, the Cameron Highlanders were organized in December 1914 under the command of Lieutenant-Colonel R.M. Thomson under authorization published in General Order 86 of 1 July 1915. The battalion mobilized and recruited in Winnipeg. The battalion embarked at Montreal on 1 June 1915 aboard GRAMPIAN, disembarking in England on 9 June 1915. Its strength was 40 officers and 998 other ranks. The battalion arrived in France on 20 February 1916, becoming part of the 3rd Canadian Division, 9th Canadian Infantry Brigade. It was later reinforced by the 14th Canadian Reserve Battalion. It returned to England on 11 February 1919, disembarked in Canada on 20 March 1919, was demobilized on 24 March 1919, and was disbanded by General Order 149 of 15 September 1920. From: Library and Archives Canada. The 113th Canadian Expeditionary Force (CEF) the Lethbridge Highlanders were organized December 22, 1915, they were part of a Canadian recruiting drive where men from the same region could enlist and serve together. This type of community spirit recruiting was very popular as it drew in friends, neighbors coworkers etc. with the promise of serving together throughout the war. The 113th consisted of 883 men and officers and had its barracks at the exhibition grounds in Lethbridge. The Battalion was not issued Highland Kit (Kilts, Glengarry caps etc.) although its three pipe and drum bands were! Standard Basic Training in the CEF lasted 14 weeks so the Battalion spent the beginning of 1916 in training and drilling in Lethbridge at the exhibition grounds. Basic training in the CEF involved rifle training, bombing or hand grenade practice, route marches, rifle drill and many inspections. Inspections were very popular for the 113th as many wished to hear their three bands. In Late May 1916 the Battalion moved to Sarcee Camp outside Calgary for further training that lasted until September. In early September 1916 orders came for the Battalion to entrain for the east and by September 19 the Battalion was on its way. On September 26th 1916 the 113th embarked along with the 111th and 145th Battalions on the SS Tuscania, a transport ship, the trip across the Atlantic took ten days and upon arriving in England the Battalion was taken to a holding camp at Sandling near Shorncliffe. It was at Sandling that Lt. Colonel Pryce-Jones the commanding officer learned that the 113th would be broken up for replacements and would not see action as a unit after all.

History / Biographical
A. Douglas Smith was the supervisor for the District Experiment Substations in Southern Alberta. Smith took over supervision of the reports from H. Chester. He worked and supervised the District Experiment Substation during the 1950s. In addition to his work with the Substation, he also wrote the annual reports on the irrigation and farming conditions. He graduated with a Bachelors of Science degree. During his time with the District Experiment Substations, A. Douglas worked as an agronomist. He observed and wrote about the yearly activities of farm life in Southern Alberta. The history of the Lethbridge Experimental Farm Station dates back to 1906, when the first experimental station opened. Up until 1959, farming activities and research at the Experimental research station was conducted by a District Supervisor. However, in 1959 the Department of Agriculture merged all agricultural activities into one, and has since been recognized as the Research Branch. Some of the national research program involves issues dealing with environmental health, sustainable farm production, and food safety. Douglas’s research at the station contributed to farm practices and new techniques for successful and sustainable irrigation. His research involved improving the efficiency of farm operation and farm life, and gained attention from other scientists not only in the area of Southern Alberta, but also across Canada. In some documents, there are also references to scientists in the U.S. that show interest in the research and techniques practiced by Smith. The Experimental Farm, where Smith was the primary supervisor during the 50s, practiced both dry land and irrigated crop rotation for wheat, sunflower, and other crops grown in the Southern Alberta district. Smith contributed to the Department of Agriculture’s national research program by issuing a speech on 11 March, 1955 where he discussed trends in water erosion control. In addition to supplying information on new trends in farming, the reports also show the environmental damage done to farms and crops due to factors such as flooding, drought, and excess wind. Smith’s contribution to the archives serves as a reference to the evolution of farm practices, policies, techniques, and research in Southern Alberta. Jones, Stephen Morgan.
