Administrative history

The 128th Battalion, sometimes referred to as the Moose Jaw Battalion or the Bull Moose, was made up of men from Moose Jaw and the surrounding areas. Lieutenant-Colonel F. Pawlett was their commander. On August 10, 1916 the battalion left Camp Hughes to begin their journey to England. In March 1917, the battalion was split up to supply reinforcements for other battalions fighting in France. Over 800 men of the original battalion became causalities of the war.
