Biography / Administrative history

A second contingent sailed for England in the spring of 1915, and from it was formed the 2nd Canadian Division. Following a period of training in England they joined the 1st Division in France in September and became a part of the newly-created Canadian Corps in September 1915. The 2nd Canadian Division was composed of the 4th, 5th and 6th Canadian Infantry Brigades and the 2nd Divisional Artillery and was commanded successively by Major-Generals S.B. Steele (25 May 1915 to 16 August 1915), R.E.W. Turner (17 August 1915 to 26 November 1916) and Sir H.R. Burstall (15 December 1916 to 22 May 1919).
