Speaker Series Review – 150 Years of the Ontario Regiment

In 1866, the Province of Canada was under threat of attack from the Fenians, and it was against this backdrop that the 34th (Ontario) Battalion of Infantry was formed.  In 150 years, they have seen two World Wars and numerous other military and peacekeeping missions, and at the March Speaker Series, highlights from that history was shared.  Rod Henderson, author of the upcoming book Fidelis et Paratus: The History of the Ontario Regiment, 1866-2016, spoke about the early days of the Regiment, its involvement in World War I and World War II, and current activities of one of the oldest continuously serving regiments in Canada and one of the senior armoured regiments.

Copies of the book can be pre-ordered from the Ontario Regiment Museum’s Website.
