The Nominal Roll for May 1918 shows Lieut. E.B. Underwood, M.C., D.C.M. as Quartermaster and Hon.  He remained in this position until the end of March 1919.  He had been promoted to the rank of Captain by 21 December 1918.


Urquhart, -, Private

Donald Fraser mentions Private Urquhart in his diary (The Journal of Private Fraser, ed. Reginald H. Roy, publ. 1998, CEF Books), shortly after the Battle of Lens: "Wednesday, 23 August 1917 - The scrapping quietened down considerably last night.  Word was received that Kitson, Esty, and Curly Elwood were wounded and Urquhart was missing.  The [infantry] battalions have been relieved."


Urquhart, Donald, 25794, Lieutenant

Lieut. D. Urquhart first appears in the September Nominal Roll, in "D" Battery of No. 1 Company.  He was on leave the following month, but had returned by November.  He is mentioned in the War Diary entry for 9 November, during the Battle of Cambrai: "14.50 ... We moved to positions as soon as it was reported that Infantry had reached objectives.  This information was incorrect as Mrs. URQUHART was first to reach railway at T.25.d.98.70 where he captured three Huns."  By the end of December he had moved to "B" Battery, where he remained until March 1919.  On 25 March 1919, he was detached to the 24th Canadian Battalion Unit Group No. 7, "F" at Montreal, for the purposes of demobilization.


Urquhart, George Alexander, Lieutenant
 
Lieut. G.A. Urquhart is shown in "F" Battery of No. 2 Company in the Nominal Roll for May 1915.  In August 1918, he was shown as the Assistant Adjutant of the Battalion.  By September he had returned to "F" Battery.  The War Diary entry for 10 November 1918, covering the Battle of Cambrai, includes the following: "15.30  1 Section of 'F' Battery supported a flank attack on IWUY from U.1. square (on right) whilst No. 2 Section supported frontal attack from THUN St MARTIN.
'A' Echelon Limbers of 'F' Battery rested in T.14.d.2.5. with Battery H.Q.  The enemy were holding the town of IWUY in force and 28th Battalion decided to wait artillery support before renewing attack.  Lieut. G.A. URQUHART assumed command 'F' Battery vice Lieut. H.J. PRICE.  The Infantry in T.10.b. were held up by German Machine Guns but on being fired on by our Machine Guns retired in the general direction of IWUY."

He remained in "F" Battery until March 1919, and was on leave at the end of December 1918.
