During the First World War a local Battalion was formed in York County under the auspices of the 12thRegiment, York Rangers. At its formation it was given the official designation as the 127th Battalion, Canadian Expeditionary Force (CEF). Upon its arrival in the UK in late August, 1916 instead of being broken up and disbursed to other units (as was the norm for the period) the Battalion became the 2nd Battalion Canadian Railway Troops. This book was written by Lt.-Col. H.M. Jackson, M.B.E., E.D. in 1922 and is the history of the battalion from its inception to its disbanding in early 1919.
