146th Battalion research project

The 146th Overseas Battalion A unit in the Canadian Expeditionary Force(CEF)

   Over 99 years ago, men from the Frontenac, Lennox and Addington Counties answered the call of King and Country to participate in the First World War.
This project is to record as much information as possible about the Battalion and it's men .

We have compiled a list of names and service numbers to assist in finding information about your ancestors. To search the list click here.

   The men of the 146 Battalion were absorbed by other units when they arrived in England. Men were transfered to where
they were needed, so they may have been in more than one unit. Here are some of the ones we know about.

 2nd Brigade  2nd and 4th Canadian Mounted Rifles   2nd Battalion & 15th Battalion
 18th Battalion & 20th Battalion   38th Battalion & 43th Battalion
 58th Battalion & 46th Battalion   80th Battalion & 95th Battalion
 102th Battalion & 124th Battalion   156th Battalion & Railway Construction Corps
 3rd, 4th & 12th Machine Gun Company   5th Trench Mortar Battery
 12th Reserve Battalion   Canadian Army Pay Corps & Canadian Field Artillery
 Newfoundland Forestry Corps   Royal Canadian Dragoons
 PPCLI(Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry) The Royal Newfoundland Regiment

   We are also looking for pictures of members in uniform, unit photos and any articles or stories you would like to share. We can copy any picture and
return it or preserve it with the Portland District & Area Heritage Society. We are also interested in any kind of artifacts that can be preserved for further
display in the local museum.

There are a lot of books and websites which need mention where information was obtain. I have put a list on the down load page if you are interested in doing your own research. A mention should also be made of the ancestors of members that have already shared some of their heritage.
