Militia Records

This list appears to have been made sometime after July 1814 given that the death date of Joseph Le Moine [Ensign] is recorded. Compare this with the roll dated 12 July 1812.

"Most militia units in Upper Canada formed flank companies, who served on a more regular or full-time basis than the ordinary members of the militia, and were sometimes termed Volunteers. They drilled every weekend, as opposed to the bulk of the militia who were required to turn out for training only twice a year in peace time."
