...They travelled from the shops, farms, and schools and factories of Eastern Quebec, New Brunswick , and Prince Edward Island during the late summer of 1914. These volunteers came together at Camp Val Cartier, outside of Montreal, where they trained briefly until they embarked for England on October 3rd, 1914. After slightly more than two months of basic training the 1073 volunteers of the 12th CEF Battalion headed out under command of Lt. Col. H. F. McLeod.
