‘Final Round’ marks an end to 37 years of service

Meaford, Ontario — On a brisk October afternoon, Major (Retired) Greg Frank loaded a C3 105 mm Howitzer. It was a task he had completed literally thousands of times over his 37-year career in the Canadian Army Reserve but this would be different: it was the last round he would ever fire.

Our History

The 7th Toronto Regiment, Royal Canadian Artillery, traces its roots back to the Volunteer Incorporated Artillery Company formed in 1813 under the command of Captain Alexander Cameron. Renamed the 1st Toronto Artillery Company, this unit put an end to the Upper Canada Rebellion on December 5th, 1837 when, under the command of Major T. Carfrae, the company fired several cannonballs through the roof of Toronto's Montgomery's Tavern. The 1855 Militia Act redesignated the company as the Toronto Field Battery, which became the 9th "Toronto" Field Battery in 1895.

In the First World War, 9th Battery fought as part of the 1st Canadian Division until 1917 when it was transferred to the 4th Canadian Division. The 15th, 30th, and 53rd batteries were formed in Toronto in 1916 and were assigned to the 2nd, 3rd and 5th Divisions respectively. Thus, Toronto gunners were represented in all First World War Canadian divisions, and in all the major battles of the latter part of the war on the Western Front, including Passchendaele, Vimy, and Amiens.
