I am the daughter of Walter Henry Beeton. On occasion he mentioned he was in the Hastie Pees. My dad passed away in 1978 and I am trying to find out more information about his service. Talking about the time he served in WWII seemed to be difficult for him.

My uncle (Morley Beeton) who served in the RCAF (as a Gunner) was also reluctant to talk about his service. It would be great to get any information on both of them especially my father.

I am looking for any photograph of William James (Bill) McAlpine of Bancroft. He was a member of the regiment for a short period in July and August of 1940 before he joined the RCAF and became a bomber pilot. He was shot down and killed over Holland in 1943.
Kindly contact me if you have any information about Bill. He was a cousin of my mother. I am writing a biography of him.

A brave soldier; Brant Lloyd Edwin ranked private served as part of your regiment in WW2. He came from Tyendinaga Reserve, in Deseronto, Ontario and he was part of the Sicily and Italy mission to take Ortona, during the time where he unfortunately died. December 14, 1943 marks his death and his grave can be found in Moro River, Italy. Coming from a secondary school named after a veteran, we take pride in individually searching about soldiers who haven't received recognition yet, and Brant Lloyd Edwin is one of them. If anyone knows more about him, please contact me at 1harinarahar@gmail.com

My Grandfather, Cpl. Robert Leo Wagar, served with the Regiment from 1939 to 1943. He was a member of Charlie company. Fortunately he fell gravely Ill and was transferred back to England to be hospitalized. Charlie company was of course completely wiped out. My Grandfather rejoined the Regiment in Holland.

He never talked about the war to any of us but I am the proud Grandson of a ploughing jockey.

I am the HLCol of the CScotR on Vancouver Island. You have an excellent website and so it should be for such an excellent regiment. I have read Mowat's books on war and the regiment as well as Howard Graham's and enjoyed them immensely. Best of luck in future regimental endeavours!!

I was in Italy to visit my son and generally sightsee. I made the point to spend the night in Ortona and visit the Moro River Cemetery on July 1st 2019. Having read Farley Mowat's book and growing up in Napanee it was humbling and awe inspiring to visit with my wife and oldest son.

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!
