I've just inherited my great uncle's (James O'Halloran Reg# B133441) medals and war records. He served 35 months overseas with the Hasty P's in UK, France and Italy. He was a rifleman and L/Cpl. The records are very interesting. He was making $1.50/day! On discharge he got a suit voucher and ration cards. Can't wait to get the medals framed and hung proudly in the house!

I wanted your Regiment to know that while governments may not always treat you with the respect you deserve, there are many in the civilian population that know and understand the sacrifices that you have made in pursuit of our freedom. For that I am eternally grateful and my hope is that you know how much you are respected for making the sacrifices that many people do not have the courage to make.

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?
