With these thoughts engaging the grave consideration of all, the Justice of the Peace brought the proceedings to a close, and thus, on the 21st day of March, in the year of our Lord, 1916, with the pledging of these first recruits, the 66th Battery, C.F.A., came into being.On March 14th, Major R. A. Brock, formerly a Lieut.-Col. in the cavalry and, at that time, O.C. the 21st Militia Battery of Westmount, was ordered to recruit 138 men - this being the numerical strength of a field battery.
