Major Greg Frank

‘Final Round’ marks an end to 37 years of service

Meaford, Ontario — On a brisk October afternoon, Major (Retired) Greg Frank loaded a C3 105 mm Howitzer. It was a task he had completed literally thousands of times over his 37-year career in the Canadian Army Reserve but this would be different: it was the last round he would ever fire.

Our History

The Lorne Scots have been an established institution in Peel, Dufferin and Halton Counties for over 150 years. The Regiment's origin is traced to the 20th Halton and 36th Peel Battalions of Infantry, both raised in September 1866. Early lineage traces back to the War of 1812.

Both of our predecessor units were Regiments of the Line. However, their Scottish heritage was sown with the Marquis of Lornes' visit to the 20th Halton Battalion in 1879. They formed a pipe band in 1881 and started wearing tartan trews and diced glengarries. The 20th Halton Rifles became the 20th Halton Battalion, Lorne Rifles. Many of today's regimental traditions date back to this historic visit.

Today the Regiment continues our heritage of defending Canada, soldiers and officers from the Lorne Scots have participated in nearly every engagement Canada has sent troops to, including : Bosnia, Afghanistan, The Philippians, Ukraine, Jordan, Africa and even domestic operation such as the 1998 Ice Storm, the G8/G20 Toronto Conference, Arctic Sovereignty, the 2017 Quebec Floods.
