Part 2 of the history undertakes to tell a story about the evolution of military logistics (combat service support) in Manitoba and Manitoban CSS units overseas, where applicable, from the Riel Rebellion of 1870 and 1885, through the Boer War, World War I, World War II and Korea. Part 2 of the history picks up the thread in the 1960’s and carries forward to the present day, focusing to a large extent on information collection from former and currently serving members through interviews and questionnaires.” As New.
