Event Description

October 20, 2012 to January 13, 2013
By the Royal BC Museum and the Canadian Scottish Regiment (Princess Mary’s) Regimental Museum

They fought to retake Vimy and stormed the beaches of Normandy. They were on the ground to keep the peace in Bosnia/Kosovo and Afghanistan.

For 100 years the brave men and women of the Canadian Scottish Regiment (Princess Mary’s) have answered the call of duty in times of war and peace. To mark the regiment’s Centennial, 100 Years of Service in Peace and War tells the regiment’s story from its earliest days to participation in United Nations peacekeeping and NATO operations.

Artifacts on display include Victoria Cross medal sets, including the four Victoria Crosses awarded to members of the 16th Battalion (The Canadian Scottish). This is only the second time these medals, and the stories they carry with them, have been gathered together in Victoria. Included in this important collection is the Victoria Cross awarded to Private James Richardson, the 20-year-old piper of the 16th Battalion, for his valiant actions at Regina Trench north of Courcelette, where he died in battle in October 1916.

Richardson’s pipes will also be on display. Thought to have been lost forever in the mud of the Somme, the war-weary pipes were repatriated to Victoria in 2006 after being rediscovered in a school in Scotland.

Visitors can compare the evolving designs and equipment included in the battle kits and uniforms worn by regiment soldiers during the First World War, the Second World War and in modern-day Afghanistan.

Photographs, letters, memorabilia and artifacts, including effects from the regiment’s mascot – a St. Bernard dog named Wallace – add touching personal vignettes of daily regimental life.

The Canadian Scottish Regiment (Princess Mary’s) is the only infantry regiment of Canada’s Militia (army reserve) based on Vancouver Island. The Regiment originated in 1912 in Victoria as the 88th Regiment (Victoria Fusiliers).
