Histoire administrative

Units raised for the Canadian Expeditionary Force (C.E.F.) from 1914 to 1919 were mainly composite units derived from contributions of men from the various units of the Canadian Active Militia. The 10th Provisional Battalion, C.E.F., was organized at Valcartier Camp in September, 1914, from 846 of all ranks of the 103rd Regiment (Calgary Rifles), and from 665 of all ranks of the 106th Regiment (Winnipeg Light Infantry). The glory of the "Fighting Tenth" as it came to be known, is written in its casualty lists--4,586 casualties out of the 5,103 of all ranks who served with the unit through the First World War. The 10th Battalion has a long list of honors and awards--two Victoria Crosses, 19 Distinguished Service Orders(DSO), two of which had two bars and one of which carried one bar, 64 Military Crosses(MC) of which 15 had bars, 60 Distinguished Conduct Medals(DCM), 278 Military Medals(MM), one of which had two bars and 21 of which had one, six Military Service Medals(MSM), 18 Foreign Decorations and 819 Mentions in Dispatches(MID). The following were officially awarded as battle honors: "Ypres 1915, 1917", "Gravenstafel", "St.Julien", "Festubert, 1915", "Mount Sorrel", "Somme, 1916", "Thiepval", "Ancre Heights", "Arras, 1917, 1918", "Vimy, 1917", "Arleux", "Hill 70", "Passchendaele", "Amiens", "Scarpe, 1918", "Drocourt-Queant", "Hindenburg Line", "Canal du Nord", "Pursuit to Mons", "France and Flanders, 1915-18".
