Categories: Canadian Expeditionary Force, World War I

11 Special Service Companies were formed in Canada in 1917. Men who were overage or underage for overseas service, had recovered from injuries or wounds received overseas, or who were marginally unfit for duty overseas were recruited. They performed garrison duties and provided guards for vulnerable points as well as military police duties. Special Service Companies were reorganized on 4 April 1918 and absorbed by the Battalions of the newly formed Canadian Garrison Regiment.
