16th Medical Company

16th Medical Company, a Reserve unit that provides medical support to the other units of 38th Canadian Brigade Group, traces its lineage to 21st Field Ambulance of World War I and 10th Field Ambulance of World War II. The latter unit moved from Ontario to Saskatchewan prior to 1939 and trained at Camp Dundurn in 1940–41. Once deployed overseas, 10th Field Ambulance provided medical support to the 6th Infantry Brigade. In the late 1970s, 19th Medical Company, located in Regina and with sub-units in Saskatoon and Moose Jaw, was absorbed into 16th (Saskatchewan) Service Battalion and re-designated 16th Medical Company. In later years, medical companies were removed from service battalions and 16th Medical Company again became an independent unit, having detachments located in Regina and Saskatoon.
