Our History

41 Service Battalion is a Combat Service Support unit that trains to provide transportation, supply, and maintenance to field units under combat conditions. With elements in both Calgary (14 Forward Support Group) and Edmonton (15 Forward Support Group), 41 Service Battalion offers critically important logistics support to all Alberta Army Reserve units on both domestic operations and major training events. It has had members serve in both World Wars, Korea, and Afghanistan. The Battalion has also provided a large number of soldiers as augmentees to the Regular Force for operations in Germany, Cyprus, Egypt, Cambodia, Bosnia, Croatia, Haiti and Somalia.

The battalion traces its origins to the formation of No. 14 Company, Canadian Army Service Corps (CASC) in Calgary on April 1, 1910. 14 Company provided transport, food services, maintenance and some supply functions until February 1922.
