History

Griffiths Wainwright was a member of the Ontario Rifles, and he participated with Colonel Macleod on the Red River Expedition of 1870. He served as a major on the Expedition, and was discharged after the Expedition Force returned to Toronto. His next service was as adjutant of the North-West Mounted Police, when he accompanied the Force on the march to the Rocky Mountains in 1874. He served with the Force until August 1876, and then retired to live in Vancouver, B.C. Sam Steele writes that in 1910: "he still lives hale and hearty ... a prominant figure at all veteran banquets and meetings."
