Lieutenant Robert England

As described on the The Regimental Rogue: 'These notes by Lieutenant Robert England were written in 1983 and privately published in the centennial year of The Royal Canadian Regiment. They describe his period of service with The Royal Canadian Regiment during the First World War. As he has commented in the endnotes, readers are advised: "This memoir is personal and assumes [the] reader will look to published histories for the World War I background and story of the Canadian Expeditionary Force in France."'
