The title of this page is not historically correct, but I have not found a way to edit a page title, so I must leave it to the moderators to make the correction. The correct name of this Battalion was '123rd Overseas Battalion, C.E.F., Royal Grenadiers' (note the difference in punctuation between the page title and the correct title). The correct name was authorized by His Royal Highness, the Governor General of Canada in December 1915. A transcription of the letter from the Assistant Adjutant General, 2nd Division (Canadian Expeditionary Force) is as follows:
Toronto Canada December 22nd 1915
From A. A. G. 2nd Division.
To: O.C. 123rd Overseas Battalion. C.E.F.
71. Bay St. City.
123rd Overseas Battalion. C.E.F? [sic]
I beg to inform you that his Royal Highness, the Governor General approves of the 123rd Overseas Battalion, C.E.F. assuming a sub-title of the Royal Grenadiers, indicating its association with the 10th Regiment, Royal Grenadiers. It will therefore be designated the 123rd Overseas Battalion, C.E.F. Royal Grenadiers.
A.A.G. 2nd, Division.
