Birth of a Regiment


Sgt Robert Spall

Robert Spall was born in Sussex England in 1890. Spall was anything but the rugged frontiersman of the regimental myth, instead, he was a 5ft 5 in customs broker from Winnipeg. He enlisted in the 90th Battalion in July 1915 and joined the Patricia’s in the field in September 1916. He was killed in action near Parvillers on August 13, 1918.
