Winnipeg 223rd Battalion

The 223rd (Canadian Scandinavians) Battalion, Canadian Army, was recruited in Manitoba in 1916 and left for overseas in 1917. In the meantime it entered a team in the Manitoba senior hockey league. This was common for Canadian military units of World War I while training in Canada.

Some of the players on this team later joined the Winnipeg Falcons.
