The Canadians were widely renowned for their effectiveness as field troops and served both on the western front and later in Russia against the Bolsheviks.
619,646 Canadians enlisted from 1914-20, nearly half of these served in the 400 different units in the Expeditionary force.
A great deal of these men were 1st generation immigrants to Canada from the British Isles, taking the opportunity of seeing their homeland and fighting for the Empire.
