Historical Information

Calgary was the headquarters to No 13 Military District during the First World War, and the city had four military hospitals with 918 beds. During the Second World War, a small arms training centre, an infantry training centre and a service flying training school were set up at Calgary, the latter under the British and Commonwealth Air Training Plan. There was also an elementary flying training school at De Winton, a few miles south of the city. The Calgary Royal Air Force stations were at Lincoln Park and McCall Field.

Calgary (St Mary's) Cemetery contains eight Commonwealth burials of the First World War and two from the Second World War,
