Alles, Craig [clipping] 26 Apr 1945 [image] Pte Craig Allen, Killed in action [clipping] 19 Apr 1945 PTE. CRAIG ALLES Word has been received by Mr. and Mrs. R.V. Alles, 827 Queen's Boulevard, that their son, Pte. Craig Alles, has been killed in action overseas. For reasons of military security mention of the unit with which he was serving, when he gave his life, cannot be made. Pte. Alles was well known among the younger people of the Twin City. He was a graduate of the K-W Collegiate and was attending Waterloo College at the time of his enlistment, where he was a member of the C.O.T.C. He was also a member of St. John's Cadets. Anxious to be on active service, he preferred not to wait for his commission and joined up July 29, 1942 with the Scots Fusiliers (Active) and went overseas Oct. 8 of the same year. Shortly after arriving overseas he transferred to the unit with which he met his death. His last letter home indicated that, with the members of his unit, he had been in the battle area for nine months and was expecting a leave shortly in lieu of a leave cancelled in January. At the K-W Collegiate he was a member of the senior rugby team and active in class activities. He was a member of Trinity United Church. Born at Ailsa Craig, 22 years ago, he leaves besides his parents, one sister, Dorothea.

Ballantyne, Harold See also Macklin, William E. See aslo Barrie, E.G. See also Dunker, Carle [clipping] 1 June 1940 [image] E.G. Barrie [image] Lieut-Col Harold Ballantyne Former O.C. “Takes Over” Changes in the command of the Scots Fusiliers of Canada were announced today on the heels of an order from Ottawa to mobilize a Waterloo County unit for active service to consist of two rifle companies of the local units and two rifle companies from the Highland Light Infantry of Canada, Galt. Lieut-Col. Harold Ballantyne, right above, officer commanding the Fusiliers, has been sked to assume command of the Essex Scottish holding company at Camp Borden, and thus will relinquish his command. He will be succeeded by Col. E.G. Barrie, left, a former O.C. of the Fusiliers. [clipping] 11 July 1940 Will Be Gone For 5 Weeks Appointment is Seen As Recognition of Work With Fusiliers Lieut-Col. Harold Ballantyne officer commanding the Scots Fusiliers of Canada has been appointed commandant of the officers and non-commissioned officers’ training school for instructors at Carling Heights near London, Ont. He left today to take charge of the camp which will open next Monday and continue for three weeks. The camp will embrace the whole of military district Nol 1, from Guelph to Windsor, and will include representatives of all army departments. There will be officers and n.c.o.’s from the infantry, artillery, engineers and corps of signals. 350 WILL ATTEND Col. Ballantyne will be in complete charge of the camp, assisted by 20 officer-instructors. His appointment is taken as recognition of the fine work he has done in training the Fusiliers. A total of 111 officers and 240 n.c.o.’s will be given instruction at the camp. The colonel will have as his adjutant, Capt. J.F. Steadman and as quartermaster, Major C. Bawden of the Canadian Fusiliers, London. The colonel’s duties will consist of organizing and directing the camp. The course has been designed to fit newer officers and n.c.o.’s to train men in the non-permanent force to replace those who have gone on active service. ADJUTANT IN CHARGE Following completion of the camp Col. Ballantyne will go to the militia camp with the Fusiliers, again taking over his duties as officer commanding the regiment and will return to Kitchener at the close of the camp. During his absence direction of the Fusiliers will be in charge of his adjutant, Lieut. G. E. Eastman, and officers of the Fusiliers not on active service.
Ballantyne, Harold [clipping] 15 March 1943 Meets Many K-W Officers In Britain Col. Harold Ballantyne Lost Part of His Kit And Money in Big Fire Wherever there are Canadian troops in England and Scotland, you will find men from Kitchener and Waterloo, Lieut.-Col. Harold Ballantyne said her today. Officer commanding the large Iperwash training centre, Col. Ballantyne just arrived back in the city after a three-month tour of duty of principal British training centres. MORALE IS GOOD Col. Ballantyne mentioned the names of some 30 Twin City officers he met in Britain. Most of them were associated with him when he was head of the Scots Fusiliers, or later when he was in charge of No. 10 Basic Training Centre. The Kitchener officer declined to discuss military matters. He did say, however, that the morale of the Canadian troops is good and that they will be particularly glad to get into action. He spoke in similar terms of the British people. “They have the feeling,” he explained, “that the next move is up to them and that the days of waiting to counter enemy moves are over.” PROVE REAL FRIENDS Col., Ballantyn’s tour of Britain ws not entirely without excitement. The building in which he was quartered one evening in te south of England caught fire and he lost a considerable portion of his kit, including his money. Capt. James Lochead and Capt. Don Ross, two Twin City officers, proved real friends in need that night, the colonel said. Capt. Lochead took him to his quarters, and with the help of Capt. Ross, outfitted him with clothing and money. Col. Ballantyne said he spent three days in bed after the fire. The other exciting incident happened one evening when Col. Ballantyne had just left a Kitchener hospital unit. He was waiting at a station for a train when German raiders came over dropping bombs. BARRAGE AMAZING It was near a group of anti-aircraft batteries, and when asked about the barrage they sent up Col. Ballantyne said it was simply amazing. “It’s hard to understand how anything could get through it,” he stated. Col. Ballantyne said he was impressed by the spirit of Kitchener men and the fine jobs they are doing. This, he said, applies equally as well to the other ranks as to the officers. One of the last nights he was in England, Major Maurice Hearn and Major Harry Vipond arranged a “Kitchener reunion.” The officers at the party included Capt. The Rev. Finlay Stewart, Major R. A. Breithaupt, Major Carl Dunker, Major harry Chace, Brigadier Jim Stewart, former London. On., district officer commanding Capt. Don Ross, Major Fred Bingham, Capt. Ralph Tailby, Capt. Grant Harper and Capt. Jim Lochead. “The dinner that evening featured Kitchener products,” the colonel said. Col. Ballantyne returned to Ipperwash today.

While with this unit he earned corporal and sergeant stripes and was recommended for commission in February 1916. Col. barrie was transferred to Kitchener with the 118th Battalion and went overseas with that unit. Later he was transferred to the 160th Bruce Battalion and he went to Frnace with this unit.

He was promoted to the rank of lieutenant-colonel in 1930. He was in command of the Scots Fusiliers from 1930 to 1935, when his term was completed, and he was on the reserve for a period of six months. He was then promoted to the rank of colonel in command of the 2nd Infantry Brigade, a position he held for three years. In August of 1939, Col. Barrie, after a short period on the reserve list, came back as officer commanding the Scots Fusiliers, a position he has held ever since. [clipping] 6 June, 1944 "Lieut.-Col.

He enlisted in the 95th Battalion, Canadian Expeditionary Force in October, 1915; was commissioned with the 118th Battalion, C.E.F., in Canada in February, 1916, and served with the 160th Battalion C.E.F. in England during 1917. "Col. Barrie was transferred to the 18th Battalion in France in April, 1918, and served with that unit in France, Belgium and Germany. "He returned with the 18th Battalion to Canada in May, 1919, and was posted to the Western Ontario Regiment. In 1923 when the North Waterloo Regiment was reorganized he was posted to that unit with the rank of captain. Commanded Brigade "Later he assumed command of the Scots Fusiliers of Canada and was commanding officer from 1930 to 1935. From 1936 to 1939 he commanded the Second Infantry Brigade. "In 1940 he reassumed command of the Scots Fusiliers of Canada which post he holds at the present time." [clipping] Given Efficiency Decoration in 1936 - Award equal to the Victoria Decoration for 20 years long service.
[clipping] September 1945 The term of command of Lt.-Col. E. G. Barrie, O.B.E., E.D. ends on 4 October 1945. Col. Barrie first joined the Queen's Own Rifles, a militia unit, in August 1915. Enlisting for active service in October, 1915, he was granted a Commission in March, 1916, and subsequently served in England, France, Belgium and Germany until May, 1919, at which time he returned to Kitchener with 160th Battalion C.E.F. Upon the reorganization of the North Waterloo Regiment in 1922 Col. Barrie renewed his military activities, becoming a Company second-in-command. He became second-in-command of the Battalion in 1926 and upon the retirement of Lt.-Col. D. G. McIntosh in 1930 assumed command of the Battalion. His first term of command ended on 31 December 1935. From 1 August 1936 until 1 August 1939 Col. Barrie was Officer Commanding the 2nd Infantry Brigade, of which this Battalion formed a part, holding the rank of Colonel. In 1940, Lt.-Col. H. Ballantyne, who had succeeded Col. Barrie as Officer Commanding, became Officer Commanding #10 Basic Training Centre and Col. Barrie again became Officer Commanding the Battalion on 4 October 1940, reverting to the rank of Lieutenant-Colonel, which he also held. Col. Barrie's last parade as Officer Commanding the Battalion will be a Battalion Parade on 4 october 1945 at 2000 hrs. Every member of the Battalion is expected to be on parade at that time to pay honour to Col. Barrie and to show our appreciation of the many years of service rendered by Col. Barrie to Canada and our Regiment.
