OVERVIEW

Baptized in the mud, blood and fire of France and Flanders, the Camerons bear the distinction of being one of only four regiments currently on the Canadian Army list to have fought as a kilted regiment.  All other kilted regiments in the Canadian Army were either raised or converted to a kilted regiment after the First World War.  Celebrating the Regiment’s centenary in 2010, the Camerons of today are as fiercely proud of their highland traditions as their forebears were.

From it’s founding, Winnipeg has had a strong Scottish tradition.  Sponsored by Thomas Douglas, the fifth Earl of Selkirk, the Red River Colony was established on the banks of the Red River in 1812, settled by Scots displaced by the highland clearances.

After years of intense pressure from the local Scottish community, the government finally authorized the raising of a highland regiment in Winnipeg.  As was the fashion at the time in the Empire, the new regiment would be raised borrowing traditions from an existing British unit.  Gazetted in 1910, the Queen’s Own Cameron Highlanders of Canada are the oldest highland regiment in Western Canada. 

This website will serve as an information source for current serving members, retired members, potential members, and other affiliated or interested people.   It includes a listing of current activities for all parts of the Camerons; the unit, the Regimental Association, and the Regimental Advisory Board.  A large part of the web site is dedicated to historical and traditional matters.  In general it is a place for anyone with an interest in the Camerons to look to for information.
