The recruits were marching east along Talbot Street enroute to the London & Port Stanley Railway Station at Kains Street, where they would board a train bound for London, Ontario and onward to Valcartier, Quebec. This was the first contingent of Elgin County men sent overseas during the First World War (left Canada on October 7, 1914). Lieutenant G.A. Metcalfe, shown here leading the contingent, was an assistant principal at Myrtle Street School, St. Thomas and was the first fatal officer casualty from Elgin County in the First World War, killed in action at Givenchy, France, June 20, 1915. The men shown marching in civilian dress are St. Thomas veterans of the Fenian Raids of the 1860s. Marching in civilian dress at right is F.W. Wright, Mayor of St. Thomas, 1897-1898. View shows Talbot Street, St. Thomas, north side, looking west from Holy Angels Church. View includes Journal Building (including the original domed tower), Home Bank Building (25th Regiment clubroom located on the second floor), Dowler's Men's Wear, W.E. Maxwell Dry Goods, Jos. McAlpine pianos, G.W. Armitage billiards and bowling. File includes:
