13th Canadian Infantry Training Brigade

The 13th Canadian Infantry Training Brigade was a training unit established in the UK during the Second World War. The brigade was formed from the 13th Canadian Infantry Brigade Group.

From CMHQ Report 133:

Formation

Early in 1944, in order to stimulate the flow of infantry reinforcements, the policy of sending formed units overseas was adopted. The first units to arrive in the United kingdom as a result of this policy were those of the 13th Canadian Infantry Brigade. This formation landed in England on 2 Jun 44 and proceeded to Yorkshire where it carried out training independent of the Infantry Reinforcement Units of Canadian Reinforcement Units.

The relationship of the 13th Canadian Infantry Brigade and CRU was clarified in the autumn of 1944 when it was proposed to amalgamate the training facilities of the Brigade and those of the Infantry Reinforcement Units under command of "A" and "D" Groups. The object of this proposal was to "enable training of infantry reinforcement personnel to be conducted along lines similar to those of field units". The proposal was approved and a new organization was established in Nov.

Among the conversions, redesignations, regroupings and disbandments thus brought about, the following important changes may be noted; "A" and "D" Groups were reduced to nil strength; the 13th Canadian Infantry Brigade was disbanded and a new organization formed known as the 13th Canadian Infantry Training Brigade. This information consisted of four Infantry Training Regiments numbered 1, 2, 3 and 4, each of which contained as sub-units one Depot Battalion and one Training Battalion.

On 23 Nov 44, one more Training Battalion was added to each Regiment thus making eight Training Battalions in all. With effect 18 Dec 44 a further expansion of the 13th Canadian Infantry Training Brigade took place, with the formation of the 5th Canadian Infantry Training Regiment.

A word of explanation regarding the functions of the Depot and Training Battalions. The former is responsible for all administration in connection with the reception, holding and dispatch of drafts. It also holds all reinforcements whom, for any reason, are not available to go forward on draft. The Training Battalion carried out refresher and collective training up to the company level. For this purpose it has an appropriate scale of weapons and transport.

Disbandment

Headquarters, 13th Canadian Infantry Training Brigade was redesignated Headquarters "D" Group Canadian Reinforcement Units in Jul 1945, redesignated HQ "D" Group Canadian Repatriation Units in Aug 1945, and finally disbanded in Jan 1946.
