    21st Battalion, Canada???

    This photo came up on Ebay... seller says it's the 21st Battalion.

    I wonder what regiment it is, or if 21st Battalion is the entire name.

    The uniform is extremely interesting. (As you can see the photo has been reversed.)

    Look at this photo:

    This would be the 21st Btn, CEF (Canadian Expeditionary Forces) in WWI.

    Note the belt plate, which looks very similar to the one worn by the Jock on the right in the first photo.

    Might be a simple case of a reversed negative or something.

    The photo definitely is from the 21st Battalion CEF. See their website at http://21stbattalion.ca
    The photo has been offered by this gentleman several times on ebay. It is a theft from our website that he has sought, not too cleverly, to disguise by printing a mirror image of the downloaded file.
    For more information on the pipers of the 21st Btn, check out the website and a book by Steven Nichol "Ordinary Heroes" which has a very good article on the pipe band.
