The Regiment

Uniform & Insignia

The dress of the Regiment is based upon the dress of the Scottish highlands and draws its traditions from the customs of the highlanders and the regiments of infantry raised there, especially from the Queen’s Own Cameron Highlanders.  Every effort has been made to preserve and enhance these traditions. 

Approval of new items and orders of dress, or modifications to existing items and orders over the years has recognized the need to provide protection and comfort over a wide range of climatic conditions and to support the complete spectrum of activity from ceremonial duties through to strenuous labour.  As the dress of the Canadian Infantryman has evolved over the last century, so has the dress of the Camerons.
