100 Years Ago: 2nd Contingent Leaves

The Intelligencer November 3, 1914 (page 1)

“Thirty-nine young men who enlisted with the Fifteenth Regiment of this city, and thirty-nine who enlisted with the 49th Regiment of Hastings County left today for Kingston, as members of the second overseas contingent. …  The boys were given what they deserve–a hearty send-off, being cheered lustily along the line of march from the Armouries to the railway station, where they embarked. A large number accompanied the brave boys to the station and the 15th Regiment Band, playing stirring martial music, led the parade.”
