10th St.Catharines Field Battery

Two young men looking at the 10th St. Catharines Field Battery recruiting poster.

The 10th St.Catharines Field Battery landed in Sicily as part of the 2nd Field Regiment in the First Division.  They served in Italy from July 1943 to January 1945, when they were transferred to Holland, along with I Canadian Corps.

The 10th returned home in late September 1945 via train.  From the train station, they marched along St. Paul Street to City Hall, where they were welcomed home by the city.  They then marched to the armoury for formal dismissal.
