Canada's Celtic Heritage.

A couple of interesting video links and websites I thought to share and pass around. One thing I've never knew was the very first Canadian flag on the German soil during the second world war was the regimental flag of the 'North Novies' (North Nova Scotia Highlanders)

One unit they forgot to mention is the 42nd, Field Artillery Regiment,(Lanark & Renfrew Regiment)RCA. This rural regiment refuses to let go of it's 'Cdn Scots roots', and I don't blame them one tiny little bit!

42nd RCA

There was a 42nd Medium Regiment in Toronto.

It was either co-located with 29th Field Regiment at University Armouries or based at Falaise Barracks on Lakeshore Boulevard.

I wonder if there's any link at all.

The 42nd in the designation reflects the original numerical designation for the 42nd Lanark & Renfrew Battalion of Infantry, later the 42nd Lanark & Renfrew Regiment in the pre-1920 militia.
