History of the RMR

ORIGIN:  The Royal Montreal Regiment traces its origins to August, 1914 as part of country’s response to the outbreak of war.  The “1st Regiment, Royal Montreal Regiment” was raised by the amalgamation of several companies of each of three existing Montreal Militia Regiments: The 1st Regiment, Canadian Grenadier Guards (372 men and 12 officers); The 3rd Regiment, Victoria Rifles of Canada (355 men and 12 officers), and the 65th Regiment, Carabiniers Mont-Royal (276 men and 8 officers).  As the Canadian Expeditionary Force (CEF) was organized by the Minister of Militia, the RMR was re-designated as the 14th Battalion (RMR), part of the 3rd Brigade, 1st Division.  983 men and 32 officers departed Montreal as the RMR, bound for Valcartier, QC for further training and reinforcement.
