Sep 26, 2017 · Canada has had war veterans since 1759 when 6 militia battalions took part in the unsuccessful defence of Québec. The brunt of the fighting in the War of 1812 was done by British regulars, but Canadian militiamen were employed, as they were later in the 1837 uprisings in Lower and Upper Canada ( see Rebellions of 1837 ) and in the Fenian raids on Canada in 1864, 1866 and 1870. During the first three years of the war enlistment was made difficult by racism. The air force had stipulated that recruits be of "pure European descent" and the Royal Canadian Navy required applicants to "be a British born subject, of a White Race" (Gaffen, 1985, p. 64).
