My great great uncle Fredrick Ernest Punchard fought with The Hastings and Prince Edward Regiment back in 1943 in Valguarnera, Sicily. As a child, i was always fascinated with the daring stories my grandfather told me about him. He was a brave man and i hope to soon visit him at the Agira Canadian War Cemetery in Sicily in the near future.

Many years ago I slept in the barracks in Belleville, Ontario as a new recruit in the Hastings and Prince Edward Regiment. I have fond memories.

Some of you may know me as Treasurer for the Association. I was fortunate enough to visit Sicily in 2005 and again with my family in 2013. Dad was a WWII veteran and we were pleased to be able to visit the places he had been.

Michael Szakszon. My Dad George Burt also serve with the Hasting and Prince Edward Regiment in WW2. Dad always shared his stories with us to make us aware of the horrors of war and that it must not happen again. Dad and Mom always attended the reunions in Bellville. and spoke very fondly of the reunions.

congratulations on the new website - looks very nice.
I don't get to Hasty P country very often but hope to do so sometime in 2017. I was last there a year ago, November 2015, to premiere my "Hasty P-centric" documentary "Bond of Strangers - The Operation Husky Story." I hope those who did not see it last year or get a DVD/Blu-ray were able to see it on TV last week. DVDs/Blu-rays still available at www.hootmotionpics.com.
Last month I went on another military history tour of Italy, where my dad (James T. Fraser) and so many other Hasty Ps fought. It was great getting back again to see the sites, make new acquaintances and renew old friendships with the local people.

i am the son of Sgt. Robert Benedict Blanchard, my father spoke very little of the war, but he was very proud of his service with the regiment. He was the first President of the Royal Canadian Legion in MacTier ON and was asked to lead Branch 407 on a number of other occasions. If there is anyone left who may have served with him. I would appreciate any information you may have about him.

Respectfully, Mike Blanchard

While in Ortona, Italy my husband, boys and I came across the headstone for Private G.E. Ott. He was killed at the age of 16. Today we remember him and all other Canadians who fought and died to allow freedom to reign.

The battle at Ortona is significant to my husband's family. They were living in the area at the time of the war. If not for soldiers like Private Ott, I may not have my husband or two boys today.

It certainly is great to have a Regimental web site available again. I have added it to my favorites for quick reference. Paratus!
