Sldr H. W. Mcleod - Militia

According to many sources this Canadian pilot served in the Militia (5th Saskatchewan, then Regina Rifles from 1928-34. This would mean he served from aged 12/13 until 18/19. I assumed that recruits would need to be at least 17 to join a militia unit. Can anyone advise?

regards

Keith

Keith,

Cadet progam age limit is 12-18 so he fits in nicely.

His service file shows him as a signaler in the Sask. Border Regt. in Estevan from 1930-32 and a signaler in the Regina Rifles 1932-34.

Superb! Thanks, Dave . One source states he was a Sergeant in the Regina Rifles. None of the accounts I read mentioned it was a Cadet Program so I assumed a mistake in dates.
