MARCH 1917


7TH Canadian Infantry Brigade.
B.M.R. 515.


The Brigade acquitted itself extremely well today. Please thank all ranks of your Regiment and say how grateful I am. The guard of honour of the Royal Canadian Regiment deserves an especial word of commendation and brought credit upon themselves and our Brigade, and this conveys to them our United thanks. In conclusion, I have rarely been prouder of the old Brigade than I am with the excellent showing all ranks made today before the Premier of Canada and his Colleague the Honourable R. Rogers.

A.C. Macdonell
