Alfred Langsford Robinson was a member of the Canadian Engineers of the 2nd Division of the Canadian Expeditionary Force. The 2nd Division officially came into existence on 25 May 1915. The engineers were very important to the war effort, constructing huts, digging trenches, facilitating transportation, and creating equipment to deal with hazards like poison gas. The division participated on many fronts, including the Second Battle of Ypres, Robecq, St. Eloi Craters, Somme, Courcelette, Regina Trench, Vimy, Hill 70 and Passchendaele.
