History

The 146th Battalion, CEF was a unit in the Canadian Expeditionary Force during the First World War. Based in Kingston, Ontario, the unit began recruiting in late 1915, in that city and the surrounding district. After sailing to England in September 1916, the Battalion was absorbed into the 95th Battalion, CEF and the 12th Reserve Battalion on October 6, 1916. The 146th Battalion, CEF had one Officer Commanding: Lieut-Col. C. A. Low. The last Canadian World War I veteran, John Babcock, joined the 146th Battalion, before being transferred to the Young Soldiers Battalion as he was underage.
