CD Book - The 42nd Battalion, C.E.F. Royal Highlanders of Canada in the Great War
by Lieut.-Colonel C.B. Topp, D.S.O., M.C.
The Battalions formation in February of 1915 as the second Royal Highlanders active service Battalion to spring from the roots of the 5th Militia Regiment in Montreal, conferred on it the coveted association with the famous Scottish Black Watch Regiment. The C.O. even managed to "pulled a few strings" to obtain the same 42nd assignation. Embarking for Europe in June 1915 as a part of the second Canadian contingent the 42nd soon took its place in the battle lines where it completely fulfilled the reputation of the Black Watch as a hard fighting, indomitable force through such battles as Mount Sorrel, The Somme, Vimy Ridge, Avion, Passchendaele, Amiens, Arras and Mons, to mention but a few.
In concluding the book Lieut.-Col. Topp provides several fact filled appendices including an Honor Roll, a Nominal Roll of Officers and Other Ranks and an Itinerary of all movements and Principal Operations. Amply supported with photographs of the battlefields and portraits of the officers, many of the battles are illustrated by "fold out" maps showing the locations and movements of the fighting forces.
