Royal Canadian Scottish Regiment 100th Anniversary

Today and Tomorrow will mark the celebrations of the Royal Canadian Scottish Regiment 100th anniversary celebrations.  Pro-Scottish citizens advocated for the formation of the regiment, which was founded on August 13th, 1913.  In the First World War the men of this regiment served in many historically significant battles, such as Ypres in April of 1915.  In the Second World War, the Canadian Scottish would yet again see action.  The men would serve on the D-Day assault, and would play a major role in the liberation of the Netherlands.  Today, it still remains as a reserves battalion, celebrating an important part of Canadian Military History and a proud symbol of Scottish heritage.  So if you are out in Victoria, be sure to attend the celebrations to recognize this special anniversary.
