Butler, E. A.

1918 Sgt Maj EA Butler
Sergeant Major EA Butler 1918

Sergeant Major EA Butler was one of 2 Battalion Sergeants Major from 1918 – 1922. In the 1918 photo is wearing four chevrons and a crown on his sleeves meaning he wasn’t qualified Warrant Officer at the time. Butler must have qualified as a Warrant Officer later as he is listed as Warrant Officer Class 1 by Library and Archives Canada when he received his Colonial Auxiliary Forces Long Service Medal. Butler was appointed as Regimental Sergeant Major at some point as he is seen in a photo of the Sergeants’ Mess as such in 1928 and 1930.
