Canadian Engineers

The Canadian Engineers (and Canadian Military Engineers) were founded in 1903, when the Canadian Government realized that the defence of Canada required more substantial defence than just a single infantry battalion and a few artillery batteries.

They were responsible for the construction of defences, sanitation systems, water supplies, bridging, and assisting with trench raids. The troops also served in the Middle East fighting the Ottomans.
