Default Two WW1 Brigadier Generals.

IWM (HU 118815)
Brigadier General A.E. Swift,DSO. Unit: East Ontario Regiment,




IWM (HU 115750)
Brigadier-General Ross John F. Hayter, CB,CMG, DSO. Cheshire Regiment, attached to the Headquarters, Canadian Corps,



R. M. C. REVIEW No. 320, Brig.-General R. J. F. Hayter, C.B., C.M.G., D.S.O., died in London on December 17th,1929 from appendicitis. General Hayter graduated, with honours, from the College in 1895, with the rank of C.S.M., and won the Bronze Medal. Taking a commission in the British Army in the Cheshire Regiment, he later served with the Mounted Infantry and on the Staff during the South African War. He then spent two years at the Staff College and four on the Staff at Malta, after which he returned to Canada as a General Staff Officer on loan from the British Army to the Canadian Forces. When the Great War broke out Major Hayter, as he then was, was stationed at Halifax, whence he proceeded overseas with the first contingent. On Salisbury Plain he was appointed Brigade-Major of the lst Canadian Infantry Brigade, in which position he served in the gas attack at Ypres and at Festubert. On formation of the Canadian Corps in September, 1915, he was appointed General Staff Officer, 2nd grade, at corps headquarters, and four months later became G.S.O.1st grade, of the newly organized 3rd Canadian Division. In that capacity he was present at Mount Sorrel, the Somme, Vimy Ridge, Hill 70, and Passchendaele. Early in December, 1917, he was given command of 10th Brigade. which he led with outstanding success throughout the driving battles of 1917. Four days before the battle of Mount Houy and capture of Valenciennes, he was appointed Brigadier-General, General Staff, of the Canadian Corps to succeed Brigadier-General M. W. Webber.✠ He accompanied the Canadians to the Rhine in the army of occupation, and on the return of the Corps to Canada he rejoined the British Army. From 1929 to 1933 he was G.S.O.1 of Western Command in England, then followed four years as Colonel-Commandant✹ of the Ferozepore Brigade area in India. Two years ago he was made brigade commander at Aldershot and was gazetted A.D.C. to the King. For his services in the war Gen. Hayter was honored by a Companionship of the Bath, the C.M.G. and D.S.O.

✹In 1921, the Army abolished the appointment of brigadier-general and replaced it with the new appointments of Colonel-Commandant and Colonel on the staff. Colonels-commandant commanded brigades, depots or training establishments, while Colonels on the staff held administrative appointments. Like Brigadier-General, both of the new appointments were temporary, the holder reverting to his substantive rank (usually Colonel) at the end of his appointment. They were both abolished from 1 June 1928, replaced by the appointment of Brigadier (though the rank insignia — a crown over three "pips" or stars — remained the same).
