‘It’s always been a partnership’ for Foot Guards museum curators

Ottawa, Ontario — You could say Estelle Lane married the Governor General’s Foot Guards (GGFG) right along with her husband, Master Warrant Officer (Retired) Martin Lane, who was a member for 15 years, but the fact is, she became a part of the family even before the pair made it official in 1967.

Our History

The Toronto Scottish Regiment was raised on July 1, 1915, as the 75th (Mississauga) Battalion, Canadian Expeditionary Force (CEF), by Lieutenant-Colonel Samuel Beckett. Within three weeks more than 1,500 personnel had been recruited. By March 1916 the battalion was fully trained and sailed for Liverpool. Over 5,500 soldiers served in the battalion during the First World War, of whom 1,049 were killed, including Lieutenant-Colonel Beckett. The 75th Battalion CEF was awarded 16 Battle Honours, and Captain Bellenden Hutcheson, the Medical Officer, won the Victoria Cross.

Lieutenant-Colonel Colin Harbottle, who had taken command of the battalion soon after the death of Lieutenant-Colonel Beckett, was encouraged by many of former officers and men to have the 75th become a permanent unit in the Canadian Militia. In May 1920 the government authorized the forming of the Mississauga Regiment to perpetuate the traditions of the 75th Battalion CEF. The Mississauga Regiment was re-designated The Toronto Scottish Regiment on Sept. 1, 1921.
