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

I was doing a little internet exploring regarding my late uncle Rupert Sapsworth uncle and am happy to see that he has not been forgotten.
Having visited Italy several times, pre-internet days, I had no knowledge of where he was interned.
The Moro River Canadian War Cemetery is now on my list of places to visit.
He would be happy to know that he has never been forgotten and that his name lives on through me, and my grandson Charles Joseph Rupert Rakki.
