The collection consists of items pertaining to the Canadian army with a focus on the 16th Battalion (The Canadian Scottish) and the Canadian Scottish Regiment. The collection is arranged into 6 alphabetically organized series. These series include ephemeral items (programs, pamphlets, menus Christmas cards, souvenir orders, and a poster), journals and scrapbooks, newspaper clippings, maps, photographs, and publications.
The collection consists of two volumes. The first volume is hardcover and contains clippings from Toronto newspapers. Some of the text extends into the 1930s but all of the photographs are from 1914-1919. The second volume is unbound. Its clippings are from an unknown source. Included with this volume are some loose clippings from the same sources, together with newspapers from Hamilton and Toronto.
