The Canadian Scottish Regiment (Princess Mary's) is a distinguished infantry regiment, proud of its heritage and traditions.
Four members have received the Victoria Cross (VC), the highest military decoration for bravery and courage.
Of all the British-led units to storm the beaches of Normandy during D-Day, it was the Canadian Scottish Regiment that made it furthest inland.
From an ocean away, this unit of volunteer soldiers traveled nearly 5 thousand miles to liberate Europe.
