Administrative history

B Company of the 140th Battalion of the Canadian Expeditionary Force consisted of 168 men, 6 of whom were non-commissioned officers. The company was formed between September and December 1915 and probably embarked for Britain to participate in the First World War in September of 1916. The men in this company came from many parts of New Brunswick. The two highest ranking non-commissioned officers were Company Sergeant Major Cecil Franklin West and Quartermaster Sergeant Harry Howard Bettle.

In November 1916, the Battalion's personnel were divided between the Royal Canadian Regiment and the Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry. The Battalion was officially disbanded in July 1918.
