Our History

Although the name 705 (Hamilton) Communication Squadron is relatively new, the history of military signalling in Hamilton began over 85 years ago, when the 1st Wireless Detachment, CE was form in 1912. This was the only militia radio unit in the Canadian Army until the outbreak of World War I.

After the war, the Royal Canadian Corps of Signals (which had first been established in 1903 as the Canadian Signalling Corps) established a Militia component (called the Canadian Corps of Signals) in 1920.A Hamilton company was formed, and was known as the 14th Company, 2nd Battalion, CCS. Its administrative headquarters was in Toronto, and the first CO of the Battalion was LCol Malloch, a native Hamiltonian.
