2. Woodstock Armoury. The Armoury is closely associated with the reform and expansion of the Active Volunteer Militia, during Frederick Borden’s tenure as Minister of Militia and Defence, from 1986 to 1911. The reforms transformed the militia from a citizen militia into an efficient fighting unit prepared for action when the First World War broke out. During this conflict Woodstock Armoury was used as both a training and recruitment centre. It presently accommodates the 89th Field Artillery.
