Biography / Administrative history
The 41st Canadian Infantry Battalion was organized in March 1915 under the command of Lieutenant-Colonel H. Archambault. Its authorization was published in General Order 86 of 1 July 1915. The battalion was mobilized at Quebec City and recruited in Ottawa and the province of Quebec. Recruits were supplied by the 70th Hull, the 54th Sherbrooke and the 85th Montreal Regiments of Active Militia. An initial draft of 5 officers and 250 other ranks was sent to England on 17 June 1915.
The battalion embarked at Quebec on 18 October 1915 aboard SAXONIA, disembarking in England on 29 October 1915. Its strength was 37 officers and 1082 other ranks. The battalion was absorbed by the 23rd Battalion on 29 February 1916. A draft of 288 was transferred from the 23rd to the 69th Battalion on 13 July 1916. The 69th Battalion was in turn absorbed by the 10th Canadian Reserve Battalion on 1 January 1917. The 41st Canadian Infantry Battalion was disbanded by General Order 149 of 15 September 1920.
