Major Greg Frank

‘Final Round’ marks an end to 37 years of service

Meaford, Ontario — On a brisk October afternoon, Major (Retired) Greg Frank loaded a C3 105 mm Howitzer. It was a task he had completed literally thousands of times over his 37-year career in the Canadian Army Reserve but this would be different: it was the last round he would ever fire.

Our History

In Wellington County, the 11th Field Artillery Regiment, Royal Canadian Artillery evolved out of the traditional county militia that was already established. In 1857, the military units of in Wellington County were re-organized into the 1st Wellington Battalion. At the time this unit was designated to an infantry role, but in 1866 a militia artillery unit was formed in response to the raids into Canada by the Fenian Brotherhood. This was the first sign that Guelph would rise to become a true “Gunner’s Town.”

On July 20th 1866, the Guelph Garrison Battery was organized into No. 1 Company of the 30th Wellington Rifles. A short five years later the battery became an independent unit and renamed the Wellington Field Battery of Artillery. In 1878 a second section made up of students from the Ontario Agricultural College at Guelph was formed, known as the Ontario Field Battery. In March 1880 the two Batteries were renumbered No. 11 and No. 16 Battery. In 1880 the Regiment was formed under the command of Major A.H. MacDonald. The Wellington Battery was commanded by Captain W. Nicholi while the Captain D. McCrae, the father of John McCrae, commanded the Ontario Battery.
