The Essex and Kent Scottish History


Those interested in learning more about the 18th Battalion are encouraged to search the blog below created by Eric Edwards. Eric's grandfather, William Robb Dewar from Galt, Ontario joined the 18th Battalion as one of the "originals" in 1914 serving in Europe until his final wounding and illness in the summer of 1917. His blog began as a family project but has grown to record and reflect the experiences of all the men of the 18th. Through research, letters, news articles and other sources his blog attempts to reflect some measure of the duty and sacrifice of these men so that we can remember them.

Almost every week we get an inquiry asking for information, photos or military records of past members of the Regiment. This most often concerns veterans of World War II. ALL personal records of members of the Regiment are sent to National Defence Headquarters then on to Library and Archives Canada immediately after release from the Army. Go to the link LIBRARY & ARCHIVES CANADA below or consult the PowerPoint below on how to access military records of family members. Thanks for your cooperation.
