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.

My Father, Simon Dumont was a native Algonquin who enlisted with the Hasty P's in 1942. He was part of the invasion of Sicily and Italy and was seriously wounded during the battle of Ortona. He recovered and fought bravely during the battle in northwest Europe, where he met my Mother in Holland after the war.

I would be greatful for the oportunity to go to visit the Holten Cemetery in the future. The only picture of him that I have is a group picture of his grade 12 High School Class.

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!

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.
