The Canadian Scottish Regiment (Princess Mary's)

The Canadian Scottish Regiment (Princess Mary's) is a distinguished infantry regiment dating its roots back to the early 1900's. The regiment bears 42 battle honours, some close to a century old. The unit is proud of its heritage and traditions and of its four members who have received the Victoria Cross (VC), the highest military decoration for bravery and courage. The Regiment is located in Victoria, Nanaimo, and Courtenay, British Columbia. The regimental headquarters being at the Bay Street Armoury in Victoria. The Armoury is a National Historic Site that was officially completed on 30 November 1915. The Regiment is part of the 39 Canadian Brigade Group.  One of four infantry regiments in B.C., the Canadian Scottish is the largest regiment in Western Canada and it continues to evolve operationally.

The infantry is the backbone of the army and it leads the way. As a light infantry regiment, the unit relies on its dismounted skills to be successful. On exercises the Regiment conducts raids, reconnaissance patrols, ambushes, amphibious assaults and airmobile operations. The soldiers must be flexible, versatile and fit to meet the demands and complexities of the modern battlefield.    Read More >>
