who were serving in the police ranks, that they might rejoin the British forces. The Dominion authorities owing to home requirements, were reluctant to grant further releases. As the result, however, of repeated requests, permission was granted early in April, 1918, to members of the force, to enlist for service overseas. On May 30th a draft of twelve officers and 726 non-commissioned officers and men left Regina under command of Major G. L. Jennings, were formed into Squadron "A" in England, and, landing in France in October, were immediately sent to the front and served In the battle area until the Armistice. For a time this squadron was attached to the Canadian Light Horse, and subsequently to Corps Headquarters.

 

On their return to Canada, in May, 1919, they were transferred back to the force, the Minister of Militia expressing his deep appreciation of their services.

 

Under command of Major George Worsley, Squadron "B" was organized for service in Siberia, going out via Vancouver. In its ranks was a large percentage of skilled horsemen. It was quartered in the vicinity of Vladivostock, and earned a reputation of being conspicuous for its efficiency and good conduct. This squadron returned home in July, 1919 its only regret being that it did not have the good fortune to see active service.

 

It is a gratifying record, and in harmony with the magnificent traditions of the Mounted Police that apart from the enrolment of many ex-members, no fewer than 1,386 officers and men eagerly risked their lives in the defence of the Empire and of better world conditions.

 

DOMINION-WIDE JURISDICTION

 

In January, 1920, important changes far-reaching in their effects, were made in the organization of the Royal North-west Mounted Police, under two Orders-in-Council, based on legislation of the previous year.
