Esquesing Historical Society: A Short History of the Lorne Scots Regiment
November 8 @ 7:00 pm
The Lorne Scots (Peel, Dufferin, & Halton Regiment), the local Militia (Army Reserves) regiment has served Canada and the local community since before Confederation. While its official birthday is in September 1866, its history predates the War of 1812. A company of the regiment has been in Georgetown since 1863 and has included many residents who have served in war and peace. Charles Veale will present the history of the regiment starting with the 1793 Milita Act and continuing to the COVID-19 Pandemic and will touch on a few more recent developments.
