In 1939, the club set up a wartime fund for the Saskatoon Light Infantry Regiment, Machine Gun Battalion. The objective was to raise $5,000 to assist the Battalion, and this was to be obtained by producing, and selling to the public, buttons sporting the Regiment's insignia for 25c a piece.

In order to get the project off the ground, an initial $500 was advanced to the fund from the club's coffers.

The photo above shows the Regiment leaving Saskatoon on December the 4th, 1939, bound for Halifax and active deployment in Europe.
