Farley Mowat's book "The Regiment" brought me here. My father served with the reserves, The Lorne Scots, out of Port Credit, from 1933 to 1939, and then served with the regulars in Italy and the Netherlands throughout the 1939-45 years.
The Hasty P's were an incredible bunch it seems.

During WWII my father, WOII Herbert G. Elliston served with the Midland Regiment in Canada and the SD&G Highrs overseas. Post-war he rejoined the Midland Regt and became a Hasty P upon amalgamation. He was CSM of C Coy in Port Hope when I joined in 1959. I served in The Regiment until I joined the Regular Force in 1964. I had the distinct privilege of serving while Lt-Col Angus Duffy was the CO.

Have been doing some family tree research. My great grandfather Albert Arnett Kennedy was part of this regime I believe 1943 & 1944. He served with Farley Mowat and is in the book The Regiment. This is the first photo I have seen of him. Are there any other photos available there?

Served in unit from 79 to 80 then went into Reg Force ..Just checking in. I don't get down to Belleville often as I retired from the CF in Calgary. Proud to have been a Hasty Pee.
I found info on Frank Rowden who served in Italy and died September 1944. Not an immediate relative but likely connected somewhere. I kept getting asked if we were related when I was in the unit
