This battalion, called the "28th Northwest" has an interesting history. It was raised in 1915 by volunteers from Western Ontario and Saskatchewan, with HQ in Winnipeg.

J.F.L. Embury. Upon arrival in England, the battalion was quickly moved up to the front and joined the 6th Infantry Brigade of the 2nd Canadian Division. They served valiantly in France and Belgium throughout the war ... many of their members are now forever young...The 28th Battalion was awarded the following battle honours: MOUNT SORREL, SOMME, 1916, 18, Flers-Courcelette, Thiepval, Ancre Heights, ARRAS, 1917, '18, Vimy, 1917, Scarpe, 1917, '18, HILL 70, Ypres 1917, Passchendaele, AMIENS, HINDENBURG LINE, Drocourt-Quéant, Canal du Nord, Cambrai, 1918, PURSUIT TO MONS, and FRANCE & FLANDERS, 1915-18.
